Slope is about how steep a line is.

When finding the slope from a line on a graph we use the method of rise over run .

- Rise is how far up
- Run is how far along

You can also think of it as the change in y over the change in x.

EXAMPLE #1:

The slope here is 4/6 which can simplify to 2/3.

EXAMPLE #2:

In this example the slope is 3/5.
