Pick 2 points the line crosses to do rise over run:

For example,

the points at (4,5) and (0,2)

From here you can count that the rise over run/slop is 3/4

To figure out the slope, just choose any 2 points on the line. And then calculate the change in the X-values and the Y-value change. Then divide the Y-value change by the X-value change. That will give you the slope.

For example, suppose the two points chosen are (1,2) and (3,8). The change in the X-values is 2. And the Y-value change is 6. Dividing the change in Y by the change in X gives us a slope of 3.

Find two points:

There's definable points at (-8, -4) and (0, 2)

Slope = rise/run

Rise, the change in y values, goes from -4 to 2 which is a rise of 6

Run, the change in x values, goes from -8 to 0 which is a run of 8

Slope = 6/8 = 3/4 <–––––––
