Explain what the slope of each line below represents. Then find the slope.

  1. The slope represents the change in height of a candle per minute.

    The line is horizontal and shows no change in slope; therefore, the slope is zero and the candle is not burning.

  1. The slope represents the gallons per month of water being removed from a well.

    Using a slope triangle, find the distances of both legs of the triangle and solve in the slope formula.
