When you’re given coordinates
When you are given coordinates for two points on a straight line finding the gradient is logic based on what you already know.
Given 10, 8 and 6, 6 find the gradient of the line.
First plot on a graph to help visualise.
`Gradient\ (m)=\(y(chang\e\ i\n))/(x(chang\e\ i\n)`
Then draw the line between the points.
Now work out the horizontal `(x)` and vertical `(y)`
Gradient of this line `(m)`=`1/2=0.5`
