How to Find Slope From graph

Tutorial, Examples and Practice Problems

Practice Problems

Video Tutorial on Finding Slope from The Graph
Example 1

Find the slope of the line in the graph below
Step 1) Plot and label 2 points on the line, anywhere on the line. Remember that the slope of a line never changes, so you can choose whatever 2 points you want and you will always get the same slope.
Slope from graph step 1
Step 2) Calculate the rise and run (You can draw it on the graph if it helps).
Step 3) Use the slope formula . The slope is 2/4, which , of course, you can simplifty to ½.
