Further Explorations with Slope – ALG ONESteepness of lineSlope is a way to quantify the steepness of a line. We all have a sense of when something issteep and when it is not. Also we can compare steepness visually. But we can confirm steepness with numericaldata using slope.Answer the following questions using the graph below. Disregard the direction of the line, focus just onthe steepness.1)Which line is so steep you cannot describe it?2)Which line appears to be the steepest (besides the one you named above)3)Which line appears to be least steep?Now calculate the actual slope of each line by looking at the rise/run ratio of each. Pay attention to thesign of your slope too! (calculate these from end to end, turn into a decimal for easier comparing)A:B:C:D:E:Is there some general statement you can make about slope and the steepness of a line?4)Use theslope formulato find the slope of the line passing through the given points.Show your work.
