First of all: You gotta know two points on your graph. Lets call these points (\[(x_{1},y_{1})\] and\[(x_{2},y_{2})\]

  • anonymous
Next to find the actual slope, you have to use the formula: \[\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{ x_{2}-x_{1} }\]

For 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: \[\frac{ 4-2 }{ 9-1 }\]

Then you would turn up with an answer of: \[\frac{ 2 }{ 8 }\]

Which can be simplified to \[\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }\]

The slope of the graph with points (1,2) and (9,4) is: \[\frac{ 1 }{ 4 } or 0.25\]

I never understand why you simplify the slope, when you do that, how would you find the next points?

@Icedragon50 how would you calculate the slope using your formula in this type of problem http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/55af0b30e4b04559507a20c1

Hello, 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: \(\dfrac{1}{4}~~{\rm or}~~0.25\)
