The slope of the line (notated as m), is the rise divided by the run. Rise can be defined as change in y, or the vertical difference. To help you remember, you can think that when you RISE up from your seat, you are changing your VERTICAL position. Run is the change in x, or the horizontal difference. When you RUN, you are most likely running HORIZONTALLY across (unless you are Spider Man and you are capable of running up the sides of buildings...but that's a different story). To find rise over run, we generally use the difference in the y coordinates (y2-y1) and divide that by the difference in the x coordinates (x2-x1). Our equation therefore reads: m=(y2-y1)/(x2-x1) For our points, y2=9, y1=4, x2=-7, and x1=1. Plugging this into the equation, we get: m=(9-4)/(-7-1) Simplify: m=(5/-8) m=-5/8
