Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Umm one explanation is\[\frac{rise}{run}=slope\] Where you pick two point and determine how much you need to travel to get one point to the other Rise would be how high or low you go Run is how far you go to the left or right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The slope of a line is the "rise" divided by the "run", meaning how high you go up the yaxis divided by how far you run down the x axis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Imagine you are driving your car from the origin (0, 0). You drive straight up the yaxis, and then you turn right on the xaxis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i think you moved 3 spaces

RyanL.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes you are correct but since you moved 3 spaces down it's a negative 3 so rise= 3 Write that down.

RyanL.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now from (0,0) to (9,0) how many spaces do you move?

RyanL.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes and since we are going to the right this time it will be positive so run=9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{rise}{run}\] Now plug those values into the fraction

RyanL.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's ok I remember when I had problems in HS and I still do. Math is not easy so be happy that you can do this type of work. For some people it's even harder. Good job!
