Remember that Linear Equations can be graphed on a coordinate plane.
Below is an example of a linear equation that has been graphed:
Slope describes how steep a line is.
Rise = Vertical Change
Run = Horizontal Change
To calculate slope, start by selecting two points on your graph. Here, we've selected (-2, 0) and (-1, 2).
Here, our vertical change from point one to point two is positive 2, while our horizontal change is positive 1. Thus, we calculate our slope:
