    Rise is when you go up with the points till you meet the line with the other point then you go to the left or right to meet the point thats your slope y0

    rise/run Rise = spaces up(+ number) or spaces down(- number) Run = spaces to the right. So from the first point, count the spaces up or down. If the line goes down, remember this number will be negative. Then count the spaces you need to "run" to the second point. Example: |dw:1352996453610:dw|

    And its RISE/RUN so your slope would be -2/3.

    For #1 you go down 6 spaces, and across 1 space. So your slope would be -6/1 or just -6.

    For #2 you go up 2 spaces, and across 6 spaces. So the slope would be 2/6. Simplified it would be 1/3. (:
