What is Slope? Ex: Find the slope of a line that passes through the pts (0,-3) and (-2,4). Run Rise s in x value change y values in change 1 2 1 2 x x y y m - - = 2 0 4 3 - - - - = m 2 7 - =

Unformatted text preview: Slope Ex: write an eqn of the line with a slope of -1/3 and a y-int of 2. y=-1/3x+2 Slope formula cont. • Ex: Line l has the eqn y= -1/3x-1 line m is ll to line l and passes thru (3,2). Write the eqn for line m . • Use y=mx+b • Slope of Line l : -1/3 2200 ∴ Slope of line m :-1/3 • Use (3,2) for (x,y) 2=(-1/3)3+b 2=-1+b 3=b y=-1/3x+3 Assignment Assignment...
