I need someone to explain slopes to me. I have a couple math questions that involve slopes and I do not understand them at all or how to even go about starting to figure them out.

To calculate the slope of a line you need only two points from that line, (x1, y1) and (x2, y2). The equation used to calculate the slope from two points is: On a graph, this can be represented as: There are three steps in calculating the slope of a straight line when you are not given its equation. Step One: Identify two points on the line. Step Two: Select one to be (x1, y1) and the other to be (x2, y2). Step Three: Use the slope equation to calculate slope. So from that information can you give two points from the line given on your graph?

Now wehave our points -2,2(x1,y1) and -2,4 (x2,y2) Do you understand where im getting this from?

So we are ready to calculate the slope using the equation for a slope: our points are -2,2 and -2,4 so... first 2 - 4 = ? and -2-2= ?
