Slope (gradient) is the amount of up or down for a given amount of along. Think of the slope of a hill!

So the gradient is

For your question this gives:

The negative gradient means that the graph 'goes down' as you move from left to right

To find the slope of the line passing through the points (-3, 8) and (1, 6), you use the formula: slope = (change in y) / (change in x). So, slope = (6 - 8) / (1 - (-3)) = -2 / 4 = -1/2. Therefore, the slope of the line is -1/2.

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.
