Slope

To find the slope given the points (1, 5) and (-1, 0), use the formula:

slope = (change in y) / (change in x)

Substitute the coordinates into the formula:

slope = (0 - 5) / (-1 - 1)

Simplify:

slope = (-5) / (-2)

slope = 5/2

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
