Finding the Slope of a Line from a Graph - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

If given a line and its graph, we can find the slope easily and quickly. Finding the slope of a line from a graph is one of the simplest ways to calculate slope. One must remember when finding the slope of a line that a downhill line has a negative slope, and an uphill line has a positive slope. Also important in an understanding of the definition of slope and interpreting graphs.
