    Umm 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.

    The slope of a line is the "rise" divided by the "run", meaning how high you go up the y-axis divided by how far you run down the x- axis

    Imagine you are driving your car from the origin (0, 0). You drive straight up the y-axis, and then you turn right on the x-axis

    Yes you are correct but since you moved 3 spaces down it's a negative -3 so rise= -3 Write that down.

    It'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!
