(a) 1/2 (b) -2 (c) -1/2 (d) 2Answer by stanbon(57282)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Can you show me a graph for the slope of these lines? ----------------- slope is change in y over change in x. ------------ (a) 1/2 Put your pencil on (0,0) Since 2 in in the denominator move your pencil 2 to the right then, since 1 is in the numerator, move your pencil one up: put a dot at that point. Draw a line thru (0,0) (2,1) That is a line with slope = 1/2: ------------------------ (b) -2= -2/1 Start at (0,0); move 1 to the right; move 2 down Draw a line thru (0,0) (1,-2) ------------------------ (c) -1/2 Start at (0,0); move 2 to the right; move 1 down Draw a line thru (0,0) (2,-1) -------------------------- (d) 2 = 2/1 Start at (0,0); move 1 to the right; move 2 up Draw a line thru (0,0) (1,2) ==================== Cheers, Stan H.
