Finding Slope Using Two Points

Finding Slope Using Two Points

Author: JD Aaron

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= y2-y1/x2-x1. This formula is called the slope formula where given two points (x1,y1) (x2,y2) you can substitute the coordinates into the slope formula to find the slope between those two points.
