The Slope of a Line Practice Questions

Problems

Find the slope of each line.

For questions 7 and 8, graph the line made by the given coordinates and find its slope.

1. (3,2) and (–7,6)
2. (–1,5) and (3,–5)

Tell whether the slope of each line is positive, negative, zero, or undefined (no slope.

For questions 15–18 use the shapes in the following figures and label the type of slope of each line segment, moving from left to right.

Use a formula to find the slope of the line through each pair of points.

1. (0,0) and (5,6)
2. (–3,–2) and (–4,–3)
3. (1,–3) and (–1,–3)
4. (5,–6) and (–2,8)
5. (–2,2) and (–2,3)

8. (5,6) and (–1,6)
9. (5,3) and (–3,–5)
10. (–3,1) and (1,7)

For questions 29–30, graph the points of the triangle and then calculate the slope of each side.

1. ΔSTA: S(2,3); T(4,–1); A(2,–4)
2. ΔABC: A(–4,–5); B(–4,–1); C(0,–5)
