# Calculating slope from tables

Practice calculating the slope of a line given some points on the line shown in a table.

## Want to join the conversation?

• I don't get y over x. Can someone explain it to me?
• Remember rise/run. Check it out on the video Worked example: slope from graph. To find the slope, you take the change in y/change in x.
• who else is watching in quarantine for online school classes?
• HURRAY, LOCKDOWN IS OVER!

(lockdown ended june 2020, however our world is forever changed)
• whos watching in 2023?
• I'm am.
• If you get negative and negative. It's positive
• Yes, it's positive. Here's a table if you need help:
Positive*Positive = Positive
Positive*Negative = Negative
Negative*Positive = Negative
Negative*Negative = Positive
• whos watching in 2024
• me and everyone else here.
• I just don't understand this math
• Did anyone else notice that the x coordinates taken separately and the y coordinates taken separately form 2 separate arithmetic progressions?
• hey, i did not until I saw this comment, that is a cool thing to point out.
• is y-intercept on the first example +10? And the second +5.5 ?
