It is the gradient of the straight line joining the origin to any point on the graph. Thus, if A = (p,q) is any point on the graph, the average unit rate between the origin and A is q/p (provided p is non-zero).

Does a derivative exist if the graph goes through the origin?

It may or may not exist. Whether or not the graph goes through the origin does not in any way affect whether or not it has a derivative. A function has a derivative if it has no discontinuities, cusps, sharp corners, or vertical tangents.

How does one find out if an equation's graph goes through the origin?

-- Take the equation -- Set either 'x' or 'y' equal to zero -- Solve the resulting equation for the remaining variable -- If the remaining variable is then also zero, then the origin is on the graph of the function If the graph is a straight line ('x' and 'y' appear in the equation only to the 1st power), then the equation has to be in the form of a simple ratio ... like (y = Kx) or (x = Ky) or (xy = K) or (x/y = K) ... in order to go through the origin.

How do you Graph the line that goes through the origin and has slope -4?

You start at the origin and go down 4, forward one. Continue doing that. Then, go up 4, back 1 starting back at the origin. Continue doing that.
