Rate of change
ratio of the change in the y-coordinates(rise) to the change in the x-coordinates(run)as you move in the positive directionratio that describes, on average, how much one quanitity changes with respect to a change in another quantity
Rate of change definition
change in y/change in x
slope of a line
the change in the y-coordinates(rise) to the change in the x-coordinates(run)as you move in the positive
the slope of a line that passes through (-1,2) and (3,4) is positive,negative or undefined
Positive slope
the slope of a libe that passes throught the points(-1,-2) and (-4,1) is it positive, negative or undefined
Negative slope
