What is the slope? Help me please I really am stuck on this

2 Answer

  • The answer is -2x+2 because when you go up 2 you are on the left side which is negative and if you go down 2 you will be on the right side which is positive. (A positive times a negative is a negative)
  • Answer: -2

    Step 1: Determine if it is positive/negative

    An important factor in slope is the sign that goes before it. If it is positive no sign if needed but if negative it requires a - sign.

    If a graph is negative the highest point is on the left side, and the values decrease.

    If a graph is positive the highest point is on the right side, and the values increase.

    In this case, the highest point is on the left side, so the slope is negative

    Step 2: Finding slope

    To find slope remember the equation when working with a graph— m= rise/ run

    This means that from one point to another, you have to find how many units is up and down between it/ how many units is left or right between it

    Using points (0,2) and (1,0) I can see that the slope is -2/1 but we can leave this as -2

    Hope this helps comment below for more questions :)
