im lost could u explain that plz

OpenStudy (anonymous):

in an equation. when the equation is written as "y = mx + b", the slope is the number "m" that is multiplied on the x, and "b" is the y-intercept, to find the slope you find the rise over the run

OpenStudy (anonymous):

The slope is a number that tells you how "steep" a line is. The bigger the slope, the more steep the line on the graph is. The slope can also tell you other things such as which direction the graph will go. The slope is calculated by first obtaining 2 points on the line. Once you have two points, you can calculate the slope using this formula: m=(y2-y1)/(x2-x1).
