User: what is slope?

Weegy: What is the slope of 6 4 and 2 -4? The slope is dy/dx = 8/4 = 2. [ What is the slope for 4 3 and -3 -4? Points: (4, 3) and (-3, -4)Slope: (-4-3)/(-3-4) = 1 ]


User: how do you find slope?

Weegy: Choose any two points on the line. Designate these points as point 1 and point 2. Name the coordinates of the first point (x1, y1) and designate the ordered pair of the second point (x2, y2). [ It doesn?t matter which point you call point 1 or point 2. 2 Write the equation for the difference of the y coordinates: y2 - y1. This is the vertical distance between the two points; it is how far the line rises in going from point 1 to point 2. Read more: How to Determine the Slope of a Line | eHow.com ]

In mathematics, the slope or gradient of a line is a number that describes both the direction and the steepness of the line.
