Can someone please help me with the following problems? I do not have the formula for finding the slope of a line. These are not homework they are for a portfolio.
Find the slope of each of the following lines.
1. y=517
2. 10 + y = x
3. y = 2x  5
4. 4x + y = 0
5. 3x  4y = 16
6. 2y  16 = x
7. y = 11x  3
8. y = 13x  14
9. 2y = 2x = 18
10. 6x = 5y = 10
Thank you very much if you are able to help.

Why would you include these problems in your portfolio if you can't solve them?

I don't know. We were just told to solve them. We were not given a formula.

y = mx+b
m=slope
Just get it in that form to find what m is.

y=mx=b
m=slop

The formula is actually simple to remeber if you've learned it.
y=mx+b
m=slope
b=constant(yintercept)

or y=a+bx
it's essentially the same thing, just in a differnt, more current form.
in this one,
a=constant
b=slope
oh, slope is also your rise/run which is y/x

y=a+bx
basic knowladge just put diffrently in more simpler form would be
in what a= constant
in what b=slope :)
