## Slope

Overview: You will learn how to find the answer to a y- slope intersect problem with little information to start with.
Slope is;
1. The tilt or inclination of a line
2. The ratio of vertical change to horizontal change
3. The change in y over the change in x
4. Rise over run

## Step 1

Put the numbers in groups.

## Step 2

The y integers go on top and the x integers go on bottom. Also, you find the difference between the 2 number ( on top and bottom).

## Step B

Then, You "run"; go across 2.

## Step 3

Find out what
-2-3= and what 6-4=.

Step 4

Now that you know that -5/2 is the slop, you have to graph it

## Step A

Since your suppose to do rise over run; you go down 5 first because it's a -5.

## Step C

Draw your arrow. Now you have you slope!

Step 5

## Equation to Use:

The 2 and 1 under the y's  and x's mean the first and second integers.

## Step 1

Label what the integers are so you won't get confused in the future

## Step 2:

Solve the equation.

## Step A

Fill the numbers into the equation.
Put these numbers in place of the equation

## Step B

Solve what you just did.

Step 3: Write your answer- The slope of the line is -5/-2.
