Estimating slope of a graph without a grid? Slope of (0,0) to (3,6) ? Slope of (0,2) to (6,3) ? Slope of (1,0) to (6,6) ?
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.
