slope

measure of the steepness of

a line written as a ratio of

vertical rise to horizontal run

between any two points on a line

slope (m) =

Rise: Difference of y-values

Find the slope of the line passing through (2,1) and (5,3).

Let (x1,y1) = (2,1) and (x2,y2) = (5,3).

Run: Difference of x-values

Substitute values.

Slope is positive
