Math 114N Initial Post InstructionsBefore we begin graphing systems of equations, a good starting point is to review our knowledge of 2-D graphs. These graphs are known as 2-D because they have two axes. Find an online image of a graph to use as the foundation of your discussion. (This is easily accomplished by searching within Google Images.)Using your graph as the example:1.Select any two points on the graph and apply the slope formula, interpreting the result as a rate of change (units of measurement required); and2.Use rate of change (slope) to explain why your graph is linear (constant slope) or not linear (changing slopes).Embed the graph into the post by copying and pasting into the discussion. You must cite the source of the image. Also be sure to show the computations used todetermine slope.Below is the graph that I chose for today's discussion. The two points for the graph are ( 0, 3) and ( 6, 0). In order to find the slope for the graph we have to use the formula m=y2−y1x2−x1y2−y1x2−x1. So when you plug in both of my points from my graph into the slope formula it'll be:0−36−0=−36=−120−36−0=−36=−12The slope of my graph will be linear because it will remain to be a straight line no matterhow long it shall continue.
