Slope Quizzes & Trivia

Y equal m times x plus b – sounds simple enough, right? At least it does until you’re staring a graph in the face until the lines start to blur in front of your exhausted eyes.

Do you need practice solving linear mathematical equations for the line’s slope given the x and y intercepts? Can you calculate the slope of a line given two points that occur along it? How do you know if a slope is negative or positive – and what’s the difference between rise and run?

Slope, or gradient, has many practical applications in daily life, such as measuring steep hills and roadways; and it’s also an important basis for the advanced mathematical study of calculus. If you need help brushing up your algebra skills, take our quizzes and get yourself some practice today!

    True or False.  In the generalized slope-intercept equation of a line, the slope of the line is represented as the coefficient of the variable x.

When it comes to linear functions, the slope of a line or hill is calculated by the ratio of the vertical change between two points to the horizontal change between those two same points. Can you calculate it?

Slope Questions & Answers

What is the slope-intercept equation of the line shown below?
The correct answer to this question is Y = -2x - 4. The slope of an equation refers to the proportion of rise/run, or the distance the line travels on the vertical axis (or y-axis), which is the rise, compared to the distance the line travels on the
Can you find the slope of the given points ( 2, 0)  and ( 1, 2)?
This answer is incorrect. The correct answer is -2. To find the slope you need to subtract the y-values, subtract the x-values, and then divide the two answers.
What is slope?
Rise over run is the answer to the question thanks
What is the slope of the line?
The answer could also be 2/8. I somehow still got it wrong
