## anonymous one year ago How do you find the slope in a line?

1. anonymous

y - y_1 = m(x-x_0) solve for m. (x_0 and y_0) are your points

* point

$\large y-y_{1}=m(x-x_{1})$ $\large m=slope$ $\large x_{1}~and~y_{1}=coordinates$

There are a few ways...you can use the slope formula $\frac{ y2 - y1 }{ x2 - x1 }$ You can even count rise over run where the rise is the change in the y-values and the run is the change in the x-values. And i don't think point slope form would help if you're actually trying to find the slope.
