  • 75. Summary on Slopes How to Find Slopes I. If two points on the line are given, use the slope formula II. If the equation of the line is given, solve for the y and get slope intercept form y = mx + b, then the number m is the slope. Geometry of Slope The slope of tilted lines are nonzero. Lines with positive slopes connect quadrants I and III. Lines with negative slopes connect quadrants II and IV. Lines that have slopes with large absolute values are steep. The slope of a horizontal line is 0. A vertical lines does not have slope or that it’s UDF. Parallel lines have the same slopes. Perpendicular lines have the negative reciprocal slopes of each other. rise run=m = Δy Δx y2 – y1 x2 – x1 =
