Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for the second one, pick two points on the graph. slope = rise (amount you go up)/run (amount you go to the left or right)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and for the last one pick two of the points given and use the slope formula: y2  y1/x2  x1 = slope PLEASE let me know if this helped
