The slope of a nonvertical line is the ratio of the vertical change (the rise) to the horizontal change (the run) between any two points on the line. The slope of the line is represented by the letter m. Example 1: Let (x1, y1) = (-4, 2) and (x2, y2) = (2, 6). y2 - y1 Step 1. m = x2 - x1 Write slope formula. Step 2. = 6 - 2 Substitute. 2 - (-4) Step 3. = 4 = 2 Simplify. 6 3

Finding the Slope of a line given 2 points.

Steps

1) Write the formula for slope, m = y2 - y1 x1 - x22) Substitute your two given points into your slope formula. 3) After you substract your points, simplify and that will equal your slope.

Here is a video and some pictures for a little help!
