Use your graphing utilities to sketch graphs of , 2. 2 y x y x y x = = + = - Conclusion about meaning of the parameter b : The slope of a line. An important characteristics of a line is the angle that the line makes with the x -axis. The measure of the steepness of a line is called the slope. Slope compares the vertical change ( the rise ) to the horizontal change ( the run ) encountered when moving from one fixed point to another along the line. 2 Definition. If a line passes through two distinct points ( 29 1 1, 1 P x y and ( 29 2 2, 2 P x y , then its slope is given by the formula ( 29 ( 29 2 1 1 2 2 1 Rise vertical change m Run horizontal change y y x x x x = - = ≠ - Run Rise ( 29 1 1 1 , P x y ( 29 2 2 2 , P x y ( 29 2 1 , x y
