What is the difference between positve and negative correlation?

Positive correlation has a positive slope and negative correlation has a negative slope.

Is a slope of a line always positive?

No because the slope of a line can be positive or negative

How do you know when the slope of a line is negative?

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.

For a negative slope what is the rise if the run is positive?

What will happen to the slope of a line if the line is shifted so that the y intercept increases and the x intercept remains the same?

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.

What are some Real examples for negative slope and positive slope?

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.
