Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Is this an EXACT drawing of the graph? It has to be exact

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok... So to find the slope, you need to look at the points. Find two points, these points should go through the x and y axis. What you're gonna do to find the slope is rise over run (rise / run) this'll give you a fraction, so for instance in this graph, you'll see the line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you see how the line goes up 1 point and then 2 to the right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Alright great, so now you have to look at the line and see where it crosses exactly. In your graph, the line goes down 4 and to the right 2. Do you see how I got those numbers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's the slope. So the since it goes down 4, that would be 4 over 2. Simplify and you get 2, so you're right :)
