    How Do You Find the Slope of a Line from a Graph?

    Trying to find the slope of a graphed line? First, identify two points on the line. Then, you could use these points to figure out the slope. In this tutorial, you'll see how to use two points on the line to find the change in 'y' and the change in 'x'. Then, you'll see how to take these values and calculate the slope. Check it out!

    What's the Formula for Slope?

    When you're dealing with linear equations, you may be asked to find the slope of a line. That's when knowing the slope formula really comes in handy! Learn the formula to find the slope of a line by watching this tutorial.

    • How Do You Know if Two Lines are Parallel?How Do You Know if Two Lines are Parallel?

    How Do You Know if Two Lines are Parallel?

    Parallel lines are lines that will go on and on forever without ever intersecting. This is because they have the same slope! If you have two linear equations that have the same slope but different y-intercepts, then those lines are parallel to one another!

    • How Do You Know if Two Lines are Perpendicular?How Do You Know if Two Lines are Perpendicular?

    How Do You Know if Two Lines are Perpendicular?

    Perpendicular lines intersect at right angles to one another. To figure out if two equations are perpendicular, take a look at their slopes. The slopes of perpendicular lines are opposite reciprocals of each other. Their product is -1! Watch this tutorial and see how to determine if two equations are perpendicular.

    What Does the Slope of a Line Mean?

    You can't learn about linear equations without learning about slope. The slope of a line is the steepness of the line. There are many ways to think about slope. Slope is the rise over the run, the change in 'y' over the change in 'x', or the gradient of a line. Check out this tutorial to learn about slope!

    • What Does 0 Slope Mean?What Does 0 Slope Mean?

    What Does 0 Slope Mean?

    A zero slope is just the slope of a horizontal line! The y-coordinate never changes no matter what the x-coordinate is! In this tutorial, learn about the meaning of zero slope.

    • What Does Undefined Slope Mean?What Does Undefined Slope Mean?

    What Does Undefined Slope Mean?

    An undefined slope (or an infinitely large slope) is the slope of a vertical line! The x-coordinate never changes no matter what the y-coordinate is! There is no run! In this tutorial, learn about the meaning of undefined slope.
