**slope of a line**given the

**equation**of the

**line**, first write it in

**slope**-intercept form. Use inverse operations to solve for y so that it is written as y=mx+b. Then you can easily see the

**slope**since it is the coefficient of the x variable, or the number in front of x.

Likewise, people ask, how do you find the equation of a line?

To find the **equation of a line** using 2 points, start by **finding** the slope of the **line** by plugging the 2 sets of coordinates into the **formula** for slope. Then, plug the slope into the slope-intercept **formula**, or y = mx + b, where "m" is the slope and "x" and "y" are one set of coordinates on the **line**.

Beside above, how do you find a slope from a graph? **Using the Slope Equation**

- Pick two points on the line and determine their coordinates.
- Determine the difference in y-coordinates of these two points (rise).
- Determine the difference in x-coordinates for these two points (run).
- Divide the difference in y-coordinates by the difference in x-coordinates (rise/run or slope).

Also to know, how do you find the slope of a line in standard form?

The **slope**-intercept **form** of a linear **equation** is y = mx + b, where m is the **slope** of the **line**. When we have a linear **equation** in **slope**-intercept **form**, it's easy to identify the **slope** of the **line** as the number in front of x. The **standard form** of a linear **equation** is Ax + By = C.

What is the slope of a horizontal line?

**Slope of a horizontal line**. When two points have the same y-value, it means they lie on a **horizontal line**. The **slope** of such a **line** is 0, and you will also find this by using the **slope** formula.
