# How do you find the slope of a line with an equation?

To find the 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

1. Pick two points on the line and determine their coordinates.
2. Determine the difference in y-coordinates of these two points (rise).
3. Determine the difference in x-coordinates for these two points (run).
4. 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.
