Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0slope is rise over run. slope intercept form is y = mx + b where m is the slope and b is the yintercept (the place where the line crosses the y axis) example: y = 2x + 4 2 would be the slope. to find the slope on the graph, you would count up 2 points, right 1 point, and you'd be at the next point on the line. (because 2 (rise)/1 (run) = 2) 4 would be the yintercept.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For the grade (incline or gradient or pitch or slope) of any physical feature, see Grade (slope). The slope of a line in the plane is defined as the rise over the run, m = Δy/Δx. In mathematics, the slope or gradient of a line describes its steepness, incline, or grade. A higher slope value indicates a steeper incline. Slope is not defined for vertical lines.
