The graph of a linear function is shown Which word describes the slope of the line? positive negative Ozero undefined 2 5 2

Solution)

The question can be solved in two ways

1) by reasoning,

The line lies in the second and the 4th quadrant and thus the

angle ∅ it makes with the x axis lies in second quadrant where the

slope tan∅ value is NEGATIVE.

2) By writing equation

The line (as seen from the graph) passes through points

(0,0) & (2,-1)

Thus the slope of the line is

M= (-1-0)/(2-0)= -1/2= -0.5

Which is a negative value,

Thus the slope is Negative
