    y=mx+b m is the slope so whichever line has something along this: y=1/3x + b has a slope of 1/3

    Do you know the slope formula?

    Slope formula= \(\sf\Large \frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\) So, you can see which points are on the line and calculate the slope.

    if you take points (-5,-4) and (6,0) you don't get a slope of 1/3 but by looking at the graph it looks like the slope would be 1/3......
