Surely you know how to find the gradient of a line?

It's change in y over change in x.

You can see two points and

The change in is and the change in is , so the gradient is...?

And then see if you are having problems then?

Get two points along the line. Get the difference in y between the points and the same for the difference in x. Then difference in y divided by difference in x.

I was going to suggest that you watch this set of videos: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/alg...ction-to-slope

That is correct, however given that you don't fundamentally understand the concept, try and look at the stuff Zacken and myself have presented to you and then we can then help you with the question afterwards It will be easier for you
