In mathematics, slope descripes the steepness, incline or grade of a line. A higher slope indicates a steeper incline. If you have two points on a line represented on a graph, the slope of that line equals (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1).
Note: 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!
Let's use the examples in the last lesson... We'll use the first one to find a formula.
