We will show you here how easy graphing slope can be using the slope and any point given .

Given a point of (1, 2) and a slope of 5/2, graph the slope of the line

First, locate the point (1, 2) and put it on the coordinate system.

Now, starting at the point (1,2) draw a rise of 5. In other words, count 5 units straight up as you draw a line

Given a point of (2, 7) and a slope of -3/2, graph the slope of the line

First, locate the point (2, 7) and put it on the coordinate system.

Notice that this time we don't rise, but fall because the slope is negative

Now, starting at the point (2,7) draw a fall of 3. In other words, count 3 units straight down as you draw a line
