1-36.

The slope of a line is a measure of its steepness and indicates whether it goes up or down from left to right. For example, the slope of the line segment A at right is

For each line segment below, find the slope. You may want to copy each line segment on graph paper in order to draw slope triangles.

Create a slope triangle for each segment.

Find the change in *y* and the change in for each segment.

See the example below. Note:
