How do you find the slope of the line passing through the points (-7,3) and (3,8)?
Need to find the change in
We know that slopes and gradients are merely just the rise over the run or the change in y over the change in x
Slope is defined as the change in y over x-
"The rise over the run"
(You rise vertically=(y-direction) and run horizontally= (x-direction)
This can be written as:
Then we just plug in your two points x and y values (which point you decide to allocate to 1 or 2 does not matter)
