What is the slope of the line that goes through the points 2 5 and 1 -3?
To solve this, use the slope formula.
the slope formula is m = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1)
m = ( -3 - 5)/ (1-2)
If you solve this, you will get 8.
So the slope of the line is 8.
Points don't have slope. In fact, they don't have anything, except location. If you want to use a couple of points to build something that has slope, one thing you could do might be to draw a line that goes through them. If you draw a line through these two points, the line has slope of negative 11/7. But the points still don't have anything except a couple of locations.
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.
The slope of a line refers to how steep the line is. Given two points, (x1,y1) and (x2,y2), the slope can be found by this formula: (y2-y1) / (x2-x1). If the number is positive, the line goes up. If the slope is negative, the line goes down. If the slope is zero, the line is horizontal and if the slope is undefined because the denominator is 0, the line is vertical.
