• opposite your slope in life if you need AB to answer simple graph're doomed. Here's your sign.
  • To find the slope, put the equation into point-slope form: y=mx+b. In other words, solve your equation for y. Once the equation is in the form y=mx+b, the slope is m. If the equation looks like: y=-mx+b, that means that your slope is negative, so don't forget to keep the negative number when you write down the slope.
  • "Slope is often used to describe the measurement of the steepness, incline, gradient, or grade of a straight line. A higher slope value indicates a steeper incline. The slope is defined as the ratio of the "rise" divided by the "run" between two points on a line, or in other words, the ratio of the altitude change to the horizontal distance between any two points on the line. It is also always the same thing as how many rises in one run." "If y is a linear function of x, then the coefficient of x is the slope of the line created by plotting the function. Therefore, if the equation of the line is given in the form y = m * x + b then m is the slope." Source and further information: So rewrite your equation in this form and you will get the slope.
