A gradient is just the slope of a line. Well, it's actually the slope of a curve at a given point, but it's most commonly applied to lines. It's basically an less technical way of saying dy/dx.
I see my mistake. I did 7-5 and -1+3 to get 2/2 and 11-13 and -2+6 to get -2/4. I'll fix it. Thanks.
What the heck is gradients? Oddly my mathbook never mentioned that term.
And the computer can give you a little help with the straight line graph calculator
The first answer is fine.
Similarly, between (6, -13) and (-2, 11), there is a gradient of
They have the same gradient and so are parallel.
I have two homework problems that I'm not sure I got right. If someone could tell me if my answer is correct that would be great. If its not right, i'll try to solve it again.
