on Finding Slope from The Graph

##### Example 1

Find the slope of the line in the graph below

Step 1Plot 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.

Step 2Calculate the rise and run (You can draw it on the graph if it helps).

Step 3Use the slope formula.

The slope is 2/4, which , of course, you can simplify to ½.
