Find the slope (m) when given two points on a line.

This section is to learn how to find the slope of a linear function when given two points on a line. It also shows how to identify slope as a rate of change. The slope formula is identified in the video as m= change in y/change in x also known as m= y_{2}-y_{1}/x_{2}-x_{1. }This formula is called the slope formula where given two points (x_{1},y_{1}) (x_{2},y_{2) }you can substitute the coordinates into the slope formula to find the slope between those two points.
