### What is college algebra slopes?

Slope intercept form. It's not just college algebra, it's algebra. It defines the slope of well... a slope. Y=mx+b. M in the equation is the slope and b is always the y-intercept. So if you want to find the slope of a line on a graph, this would most likely be the most common equation in algebra to find it.

### What does slope mean in algebra?

Slope in algebra refers to the rate of change of a function at a given point. This can be used in physics, where on a graph that shows the change in velocity, the value of the slope is equal to the acceleration at that moment in time.

### The slope of a vertical line is?

A vertical line is NO SLOPE to ski on. That's how my Algebra teacher taught us to remember it. Slope is rise/run with run=0, so the slope is infinity or "No Slope"

### What is the slope in algebra?

Slope is the amount that y increases/decreases by when x increases by one. If you have an slope-intercept equation of y=mx=b, your slope is m. For example, in the equation, y=3x+14, your slope is 3.

### What does slope tell you about inches and centimeters?

Nothing. Slope is a measure used in graphing and algebra. Feet and inches are units of linear measurement.

### What is a steeper slope?

In algebra, as in the physical world, steeper means closer to vertical.

### Is algebra two a college requirement?

In a way yes, Algebra 2 is essential in order for you to comprehend topics which will be in algebra. Such as finding the slope of perpendicular lines and parallel lines, those topics are presented to you in Algebra 2 and if you understand them at least 45% then by the time you get to college algebra that knowledge will be reinforced

### Why does the slope formula not work on vertical lines?

The slope formula is defined as the rise over the run, a.k.a the change in Y over the change in X. m= (y1-y2)/(x1-x2). For a Vertical Line, the rise is infinite while the run is zero, suggesting a slope of infinity/zero (because the slope is the rise over the run). Zero can be put into infinity an infinite amount of times, describing an INFINITE SLOPE, which limit calculus is required to reveal. However, for algebra… Read More

### How do you calculate the slope in algebra?

I assume your are asking how to calculate the slope of a line. Pick two points: (x1, y1) and (x2, y2). The slope is: (y2-y1) / (x2-x1). This is also referred to as rise over run, or change in y over change in x. Be sure to simplify the fraction all the way!

### What is the difference between algebra and advance algebra?

While I am not positive of the precise definition of advanced algebra, I would assume advanced algebra refers to trigonometry and calculus principles such as derivatives and optimization. Algebra, on the other hand, simply deals with the finding of one variable Example: 5x=3x+4 or perhaps sometimes two to three variables. This is possible when given multiple equations. Example: 5x+3y+2z=7 7x+9y+4z=5 x+3y+6z=4 Algebra is also distinguished by graphing slope and occasionally logarithmic functions.

x+y = 2 in mx + b form the m is the slope and the b is the y-intercept so you can rewrite this as y = -x + 2 so here the -x is really a -1x so the slope which is m is -1 and 2 is the y-intercept check out khanacademy.org for great instructional videos on algebra and other math areas

### How do you graph when there is no slope intercept form?

If you have anything that you're planning to graph, it's got to be an equation that has 'x' and 'y' in it. If you have an equation that has 'x' and 'y' in it and you're planning to graph the equation, then you've had enough elementary algebra to know how to solve the equation for 'y'. Do that first and bada bing, it'll be in slope/intercept form.

### What is standard form in algebra?

Ax + By = C If the slope of "x" was 3, and the slope of "y" was 7, then the equation would look like this: 3x + 7y = C (and C would be an integger, such as 21) I think it has something to do with 'the power to' e.g 22 is 2x2 or 28 2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2 Standard form is a graph. There are different graphs for different things.

Depending on the context, the rate of change may be called different things. In algebra, we recognize rate of change as slope. Or, more simply, change in y over change in x. In calculus, the rate of change is the slope of the line tangent to the curve. In terms of chemistry, the rate of change would refer to the reaction rate.

you have to plug in one of the coordinates that you have. For example if one of ur coordinates is (2,3) then you would say 3= -2(2)+b then you would just have to solve it like a algebra problem and just solve for b

### Write an equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line. 3 -1 in parenthess 9x -7y 4 Simplify type in the from of ymx b. Thank?

This is simple algebra. You should know that parallel lines have the same slope. So you would take the slope of the line that is given to you and set it up in the equation y= mx + b. m stand for your slope and you would take the point that it gives you (3, -1) and plug it into y = mx + b (along with your slope) and solve for b..once you've solved… Read More

If I were engineering a road, I would have to calculate the volume of gravel and asphalt per unit of length and multiply them for the whole road. I would have to calculate labor rates and percentages of sick days for the crew. Seriously, every type… Read More

### How do you create an equation for a graph in algebra?

y=mx+b, where m is the slope (rise over run, or how much it goes up divided by how much it goes right) and b is the y-intercept (where the line hits the y-axis).

### How will changing the 3 into an 8 in the equation y equals 2x-3 affect the graph?

First, you need to understand that y = 2x - 3 is the slope-intercept form of a line. Remember from middle/high school algebra that the slope-intercept form of a line is: y = mx + b where: m is the slope of the line b is the y-intercept of the line since -8 < -3, the y-intercept moves "down". Since the slope is unchanged, the rest of the line must also move "down". I will… Read More
