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 yaxis 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 yaxis, and then you turn right on the xaxis

ryan why are you so mean

i was in need of help and yet you were asking someone clueless girl if they know how to divide of course i know the basics

xoxo Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i think you moved 3 spaces
 2 years ago

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

RyanL. Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Now from (0,0) to (9,0) how many spaces do you move?
 2 years ago

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

xoxo Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
okay and do yuou divide after?

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

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!
