Finding the Slope of a Line from Two Points

Slope measures the steepness of a line or the rise divided by the run. Another way to think of this is the comparison of the amount a line goes up or down compared to how much it changes left

Finding the Slope of a Line from 2 Points

Given the points (3,4) and (6,8) find the slope of the line, the distance between the two points, and the angle of incline: m = 8 - 4 6 - 3 = 4 3 d = √ (6 - 3)2 + (8 - 4)2 = 5 4 3 = tan (θ) θ = tan -1 ( 4 3 ) = 53.13°
