How To: Derive and use the slope formula

Derive and use the slope formula

In this video, we learn how to derive and use the slop formula. The slope of a line is equal to change in y divided by the change in x. First, put the first point on the coordinate point. Then, represent the X and Y by X1 and Y1. Then, put the second point on the plane, representing the coordinates with X2 and Y2. Now, with these two points, draw a straight line and derive the formula from here. The change in X will be from X1 to X2. Now, replace that with the change in X and do the same for the change of Y. Once finished with this, do the math and you will have the slope!
