x-axis is starting from zero, but y-axis starts at non-zero. How do I go about calculating the gradient now?
For example,
Here are 2 co-ordinates for gradient calculation:
(1.05,0.45) and (2.4,0.75)
and the y-axis starts at 0.3

Do I need to subtract both of y-co-ordinates with 0.3?

Just do what you usually do to calculate the gradient

Just use gradient formula:
m =(y2-y1)/(x2-x1)
with the two given co-ordinates
