00:00:00.600 --> 00:00:03.960
What is slope of the function represented by the given figure?
00:00:04.840 --> 00:00:08.360
Slope is the vertical change over the horizontal change.
00:00:09.440 --> 00:00:13.160
So vertical means up and down.
00:00:13.960 --> 00:00:18.200
Horizontal means left and right.
00:00:19.000 --> 00:00:24.000
So when we look at this line, we need to go left to right.
00:00:25.000 --> 00:00:29.080
So letâ€™s go ahead and pick two points that it goes through.
00:00:30.120 --> 00:00:34.920
It passes through the points zero, 10 and five, zero.
00:00:35.640 --> 00:00:41.920
So to get from zero, 10 to five, zero, how do we need to change vertically?
00:00:42.760 --> 00:00:53.280
We will need to go down 10, which will be negative for a vertical change, and then right five.
00:00:54.000 --> 00:00:57.960
So our slope will be negative 10 over five.
00:00:58.480 --> 00:00:59.800
However, we need to simplify.
00:01:00.600 --> 00:01:03.680
And negative 10 divided by five is negative two.
00:01:04.600 --> 00:01:14.160
Therefore, the slope of this function will be negative two or could be written as negative two over one.
