If the algebraic equation is linear, in the form y = mx + b, the slope is simply m; the difference in y of any 2 points divided by the difference in x of those points (rise over run).

If the equation is non-linear, the slope is the first derivative of that equation, from calculus. You woul need to know calculus to solve in this case. The slope will vary from point to point, unlike the linear case, where slope is constant.
