If you are plotting points and the points are negative 6 negative 6 and 3 6 what would be the rise and the run of the slope?
rise = y2 - y1
run = x2 - x1
thus, rise = 6 - (-6) = 12
and run = 3 - (-6) = 9
slope = rise/run
therefore, slope = 12/9 = 4/3
If the slope is negative, or going downhill, then that means the graph will be a regular coordinate system (x and y axis). The only thing that is different is the direnction of the slope. A positive, or regular, slope formula, looks like this: y= 2x + 3, for example. Since there are no negative signs, the slope would be going upwards. But a negative slope, like you are talking about, would look either like…
For example, if the slope at a certain point is 1.5, you can draw a line that goes through the specified point, with that slope. The line would represent the slope at that point. If you want to graph the slope at ALL POINTS, take the derivative of the function, and graph the derivative. The derivative shows the slope of a function at all points.
If those are the x-y coordinates of two points, then they're two points. Two points don't have a slope. In fact, points don't have anything. If we want to play around with two points for a while, one thing we could do with them would be to draw a line segment between them. With these particular two points, the line segment would be about 4.472 long, its slope would be -2, and it would be…
