Select two distinct values of X, designated X1 and X2, from the table, read the corresponding values Y1 and Y2 from the table, and calculate the slope from the formula: slope = (Y2 - Y1)/(X2 - X1)

slope is the steepness of a line, it is defined by the change in the y values divided by the change in the x values of any two points on a line (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) slope = (y1 - y2)/(x1 - x2)

Change in y values over change in x values. Rise over run.

No. the slope of parallel lines would be equal but not necessarily zero. How many values can m have in " y=mx +b "? where m is the slope of the lines.

A line in slope-intercept form is: y = mx + b m is the slope of the line, and b is the y-intercept. To find the slope, find any two coordinates, and divide the difference in y-values by the difference in x-values; to find the y-intercept, find the value of y where x = 0.

how the values of the slope affect the overall meaning of the equation?

A positive slope is a slope that is increasing when read from left to right. To be increasing, means that as the x values are increasing, so are the y values as the graph is read from left to right.

In math, the slope of a line represents its steepness. It is the change in y values over the change in the values of x, or rise over run.

This will emphasize the 'rise over run' expression of slope. In other words, the change in y over the change in x. This show the run, or change in x values, even if the slope is a whole number. A slope of 3 becomes 3/1 showing the change in y-values to be 3 and the change in x-values to be 1.

Select two distinct values of X, designated X1 and X2, from the table, read the corresponding values Y1 and Y2 from the table, and calculate the slope from the formula: slope = (Y2 - Y1)/(X2 - X1)

slope is the steepness of a line, it is defined by the change in the y values divided by the change in the x values of any two points on a line (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) slope = (y1 - y2)/(x1 - x2)

It's (the difference in the points' y-values) divided by (the difference in their x-values)
