Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First of all: You gotta know two points on your graph. Lets call these points (\[(x_{1},y_{1})\] and\[(x_{2},y_{2})\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Next to find the actual slope, you have to use the formula: \[\frac{y_{2}y_{1}}{ x_{2}x_{1} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For example, if you were trying trying to find the slope of the two points (1,2) and (9,4) Use the slope formula and the equation would look something like this: \[\frac{ 42 }{ 91 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I never understand why you simplify the slope, when you do that, how would you find the next points?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Icedragon50 how would you calculate the slope using your formula in this type of problem http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/55af0b30e4b04559507a20c1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hello, Icedragon50, nice work! Just a quick latex advise for what you have wrote \(\dfrac{1}{4}or0.25\) you can use ~ for a space (and the more ~ you put, the more space you get). `\(\dfrac{1}{4}~or~0.25\)` (see how I used the ~ for space?) and it gives you \(\dfrac{1}{4}~or~0.25\) or, even better with \rm font, and more space. `\(\dfrac{1}{4}~~{\rm or}~~0.25\)` and it gives you: \(\dfrac{1}{4}~~{\rm or}~~0.25\)
