Y-intercept

What is slope?

The slope of a line is the measure of the steepness and the direction of the line. and it can be found with a simple formula

The variable for slope is...

m!

m = slope

**3**

What is "Rise" and "Run"?

**4**

The rise and run is how we solve for slope (m). The formula is

**m=rise/run**. When they are divided with each other, they give us the slope.Rise

**Way to remember:**You can use the word '

**rYse**' instead of 'rise' to remember that it means to go up/down on the

**-axis**

*Y*The "rise" of a line is how much the line goes up (+) or down (-) on the y-axis.

Negative Slope (-m)

Positive Slope (m)

Run

The "run" of a line is how much the line goes left (-) or right (+) on the x-axis.

What is the Slope-Intercept form?

The Slope-Intercept form is the equation of a line with a y-intercept. The formula is 'y=mx+b'.

m = slope

b = y-intercept

b = y-intercept

y = mx + b

**5**

m = 3 or 3/1

b = -2

b = -2
