Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A slope is the change in Y over the change in X. In other words, the incline or decline of a line. In this case, the line suggested by these points has a slope of (8+5), the change in Y divided by (4+5), the change in X 13/1 = 13

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That gives you slope. To remember that it's "rise over run." (58)/(4+3)...which would be 13/1...so that's up 13 units and to the right 1.
