## Example Questions

### Example Question #1 : Slope & Intercept

What is the slope and y-intercept of this line: ?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Step 1: Move the y-term to the other side. We will add 4y.

Step 2: Move the constant to the other side. We will subtract 12.

Step 3: Divide by the coefficient in front of the y term. In this question, we divide all terms by 4.

Step 4: Identify the slope and the y-intercept. The slope is the number that is in front of the x term, and the y-intercept is the number that comes after the x-term.

In this question, the slope is and the y-intercept is .

### Example Question #2 : Slope & Intercept

Find the slope of a line that passes through points and .

**Possible Answers:**

Slope is undefined.

**Correct answer:**

The formula for slope is:

When the y coordinates are the same, as in this case both were -1, this would form a horizontal line. The slope of a horizontal line is zero.

### Example Question #3 : Slope & Intercept

Find the slope of a line that passes through points and

**Possible Answers:**

Slope is undefined.

**Correct answer:**

Slope is undefined.

The formula for slope is:

Slope is undefined.

If the x coordinates are the same, as in this problem both x coordinates are 4, then this will be a vertical line. The slope of a vertical line is undefined.

### Example Question #8 : Slope & Intercept

The points given lie on a line. Find the slope.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

slope =

rise = changes in y

run = changes in x

The change in the coordinates is that the numbers are decreasing by 3 or -3.

The change in the coordinates is that the numbers are increasing by 2 or +2;

slope =

### Example Question #9 : Slope & Intercept

The points given lie on a line. Find the slope.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

slope =

rise = changes in y

run = changes in x

The change in the coordinates is that the numbers are increasing by 3 or +3.

The change in the coordinates is that the numbers are increasing by 4 or +4.

slope =

### Example Question #10 : Slope & Intercept

The points given lie on a line. Find the slope.

**Possible Answers:**

Slope is undefined.

**Correct answer:**

slope =

rise = changes in y

run = changes in x

There is zero change in the coordinates.

The change in the coordinates is that the numbers are increasing by 2 or +2.

slope =

If the coordinates are the same, then it will be a horizontal line. The slope of a horizontal line is 0.
