# Lesson 10

Calculating Slope

Let’s calculate slope from two points.

### Problem 1

For each graph, calculate the slope of the line.

### Problem 2

Match each pair of points to the slope of the line that joins them.

### Problem 3

Draw a line with the given slope through the given point. What other point lies on that line?

- Point A, slope = \(\text-3\)
- Point A, slope = \(\frac {\text{-}1}{4}\)
- Point C, slope = \(\frac {\text{-}1}{2}\)
- Point E, slope = \(\frac {\text{-}2}{3}\)

### Problem 4

Make a sketch of a linear relationship with a slope of 4 and a negative \(y\)-intercept. Show how you know the slope is 4 and write an equation for the line.
