A positive number divided by a negative number is negative. The same happens if you divide a negative number by a positive number - the result will also be negative.yes
For a negative slope, the rise is negative and the run is positive.
Positive correlation has a positive slope and negative correlation has a negative slope.
You know when the slope of a line is negative when m in the slope-intercept form equation y=mx+b is negative. For example, y=-3x+2 has a negative slope since m (which is -3 in this case) is negative. This is the same when finding a positive slope, because if m is positive, then the slope is positive.
No because the slope of a line can be positive or negative
The answer depends on the signs of the original intercepts.x negative, y negative: negative slope becomes less negative and could go positive.x negative, y positive: positive slope becomes greater.x positive, y negative: positive slope becomes less positive and could go negative.x positive, y positive: negative slope becomes more negative.For 1 and 3, the slope changes sign when the y intercept crosses the origin.
A positive slope is simply a slope going upward on a graph from left to right. A negative slope is a slope going downward from left to right. Often, negative slopes are the reverse of positive slopes and are both depending on the person's direction.
positive slope negative slope zero slope undefined
If the pressure is increasing then the slope is positive. If the pressure is decreasing then the slope is negative.
The line has a negative slope (or negative gradient).When the angle between the line and the positive direction of Ox is obtuse then the slope is negative. Conversely, when the angle is acute, the slope is positive.
larger slope if positive and a smaller slope if negative
If a line has a negative slope it is going 'down hill' and if it has a positive slope it is going 'up hill'
A positive slope goes upwards whereas a negative slope goes down wards
A slope is positive or negative based on if the line goes from the upper left corner down to the lower right corner or right to left. Left is positive right is negative.
positive slope negative slope undefined slope zero slope
The slope of a straight line equation can be positive, negative or neither
Positive correlation = the slope of the scattered dots will rise from left to right (positive slope) Negative correlation = the slope of the scattered dots will fall from left to right (negative slope) No correlation = no real visible slope, the dots are too scattered to tell.
Yes. If the fraction is the same, the negative slope would have at least one negative number, while the positive would have both positive numbers. I'm pretty sure. :)
If you mean: y = 12x+1 then it has a positive slope of 12 and a y intercept of 1
If you mean: y = 2x+3 then it is a positive slope of 2 with a y intercept of 3
the change of rise over run. a positive slope goes up and a negative slope goes down
It would be the negative of the negative reciprocal. And since the negative of a negative is a posivie, it is the positive reciprocal.. For example, if the slope was -3, the other would be 1/3.
Assuming you mean the slope of a line, not the scope, the slope of a line is determined by its rise over its run. Take 2 points on the line (x1,y1), (x2,y2) and find the slope by plugging it into this equation: (x1-x2)/(y1-y2). If the answer is positive, the slope is positive, if the answer is negative, the slope is negative, if the answer is zero, the slope is zero, and if the answer is undefined (i.e. dividing by zero), your slope is undeifined.
