FINDING SLOPE AND Y-

INTERCEPT On a graph

OBJECTIVE

To ANALYZE graphs and DISTINGUISH slope and y-intercept.

To ANALYZE tables and DISTINGUISH slope and y-intercept.

POSITIVE SLOPE = +RISE/RUN

NEGATIVE SLOPE = -RISE/RUN

ZERO SLOPE = 0 RISE/RUN

NO SLOPE/SLOPE UNDEFINED = IMPOSSIBLE (YEEK!)

SLOPE = 2/3POSITIVE SLOPE
