# Can you help me solve basic slope questions?

 +1 vote! +7 you voted Answer by  bentham (159) A basic slope question is generally about how fast a dependent variable (y) changes as an independent variable (x) changes. Ask how far x runs across the bottom of the graph for each unit that y rises up the side of the graph. Dividing the rise by the run to get the slope solves this basic question.

Generally slope questions are easy algebra and you can search the internet very easily to find the right result. Slopes are not that complicated and you will learn how.
