Find Slope From Two Points Worksheet

6 problems

Finding slope from two points is a fundamental concept in algebra and geometry. It involves calculating the slope of a line given two points on the line. The slope is defined as the ratio of the rise (change in `y`-coordinates) to the run (change in `x`-coordinates). This skill is essential for solving problems involving linear equations and graphing lines.

Solved Example

Q. Find the slope of the line that passes through (1,5)(1, 5) and (3,6)(3, 6).\newlineWrite your answer in its simplest form.
  1. Identify Coordinates: Identify the coordinates of the two points.\newlinePoint 11: (x1,y1)=(1,5)(x_1, y_1) = (1, 5)\newlinePoint 22: (x2,y2)=(3,6)(x_2, y_2) = (3, 6)\newlineWe will use these coordinates to calculate the slope of the line.
  2. Recall Slope Formula: Recall the formula for the slope mm of a line given two points: m=y2y1x2x1m = \frac{y_2 - y_1}{x_2 - x_1}. We will plug the coordinates of the two points into this formula to find the slope.
  3. Substitute Coordinates: Substitute the coordinates into the slope formula. m=6531m = \frac{6 - 5}{3 - 1}
  4. Perform Subtraction: Perform the subtraction in the numerator and the denominator.\newlinem=12m = \frac{1}{2}
  5. Simplify Fraction: Simplify the fraction if necessary.\newlineIn this case, the fraction 12\frac{1}{2} is already in its simplest form.
