    first number the sides with ruler(centimeters/inches depending on problem)and you plot in coordinates and remember that x horizontal

    you do not need to graph anything in order to find the slope between two given points. the slope is just the change in y divided by the change in x. e.g. the slope of a line between (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) would be: slope = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1)

    use the slope formula, as told by asnaseer

    right 3 units, up six units, slope is \(\frac{6}{3}=2\)

    satellite is doing rise over run, another way to do slopes.
