### High School Mathematics - 29.3 Slope - I

 The slope is a ratio of vertical to horizontal distances. Slope = rise/run. Example - I: Find the slope of the line y = 3x. Solution: This is in the form of y = mx Therefore, slope of y =mx is m, Therefore the slope of the equation = 3. Example - II: Find the slope of the line 3y = x. Solution: We may convert the given line in the form of y = mx. i.e., 3y = x y = (1/3)x The slope for y = mx is m Therefore the slope of the given line is 1/3. Directions: Find the slopes of the given lines. Also write at least ten equations of your own and find their slopes.
