Slope is the line measurement of steepness.

Step-by-step explanation:

It can be calculated by “rise over run”.

It is usually represented by the letter M.

The equation for slope is y^2 – y^1 divided by x^2 – x^1

I hope this helped.

2. Of course I can! So when we are given a line, all you have to do it find the INTERCEPT along the y-axis and then find the rate at which it goes up or down. Now this is just for linear. Their is also exponential and quadratic when you get to that level. In linear, we go up at a constant rate. Same with quadratic. But exponential doesn’t increase in equal increments.

If we look at the image attached, you can see that the line intercepts the y axis at (0,7), and to find the actual slope of the line, we do rise over run. So we do the change in y over the change in x. So for the example provided, we go up 1 and then run 4. So the slope of this line is 1/4. And when we use slope-intercept form, y=mx+b. After the slope, we put an x. You were most-likely taught in school to use slope-intercept form when graphing a line.

So our slope of the example is 1/4 and our y-intercept is 7.

So our equation is

y=1/4x+7
