Find Slope Given Point-Slope Form Worksheet

6 problems

To find the slope from the point-slope form of a linear equation, we can use the following equation.

`y - y_1 = m(x - x_1)`

Within this formula:

  • On the line, `(x_1, y_1)` is a point.
  • The line's slope is `m`.

Use these worksheets to enhance your computation skills.

Example: Find the slope of the following equation of line. `y - 5 =-2(x - 9)`

Solved Example

Q. Find the slope of the line y+3=118(x+6)y + 3 = -\frac{1}{18}(x + 6).\newline
  1. Identify Point-Slope Form: The equation is already in point-slope form, which is yy1=m(xx1)y - y_1 = m(x - x_1), where mm is the slope.
  2. Find Slope: Now, let's identify the slope from the equation y+3=118(x+6)y + 3 = -\frac{1}{18}(x + 6).
  3. Final Answer: If we compare the given equation with point-slope form, we get the value of mm. \newlinem=118m=-\frac{1}{18}\newlineSo, the slope is 118-\frac{1}{18}.
