i know how to find the slope i just dont know how to find out whether if it falls, rises that stuff

Okay, good, now, I'm going to simply plug each point into that formula: 3 = 14m + b 11 = 4m + b Are you with me so far?

Okay, m is the slope, so I'm going to isolate b in both equations: b = 3  14m b = 11  4m Do you see how I got that?

It takes a little practice to understand it, but now I'm going to set b = b to get: 3  14m = 11  4m

Now all I have to do is solve for m: 3  11 = 14m  4m 14 = 10m 14/10 = m  7/5 = m

You shouldn't enter the answer so fast :P I guess I can take my own advice in that regard.

Sometimes, I make typos, so you should wait at least one minute after someone posts their answer.

By the way, If the slope is NEGATIVE, it FALLS If the slope is POSITIVE, it RISES

If something falls, it's always going down, right? If a plane rises from the ground, it is always going up, right?
