The slope is currently 1.

#### Explanation:

This is a direct variation equation. The equation is: *y= ax* , where *a* is the slope. In your equation, the a, or slope is 1. Just substitute for x and you can also make table. graph{x [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

**Since it is direct variation, it passes through 0.** This is very important. Since the slope is 1, you can also just graph the easy way by rise 1, run 1.
