Determine the slope of a line

1. Determine the slope of a line using the graph.
The slope (also called: gradient) of a line is the ratio of the change in y compared to the change in x.


Look at the picture and determine the slope:

2. Determine the slope of a line from two points
You can determine the slope of a line finding two points P(x 1,y1) and Q(x2,y2) on the line and using the following equation:

Look at the picture and determine the slope:





The slope (gradient) is m =
