    1. Choose one point as first point and other point as second point. 2. Subtract first y value from second y value 3. Subtract first x value from second x value 4. Divide the difference of y values by the difference of the x values That is what is meant by the formula for the slope: slope = m = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1)
