Calculating the slope of a line from two given points? Use the slope formula! This tutorial will show you how!
Perpendicular lines have slopes that are opposite reciprocals of each other. To find the slope of a line that is perpendicular to a given equation, find the opposite reciprocal of that slope. Check out this tutorial to learn how!
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.
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!
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.
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 a negative slope mean? What does the graph of a negative slope look like? Find the answers to these questions by watching this tutorial!
What does a positive slope mean? What does the graph of a positive slope look like? Find the answers to these questions by watching this tutorial!
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.
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.
Looking at a graph of parallel lines? Got the equation of one of the lines? Want to find the slope of the other line? No problem! Just remember that parallel lines have the same slope! Use the given equation to find the slope of the first line and since the lines are parallel, that's the slope of the second line! To see an example, check out this tutorial.
