On a straight line graph, if the line is going this way \ and it goes through 5 on the x axis and 4 on the y axis then what is it's gradient? How do I work this out?

Thanks xx

You also have to specify a point that the line goes through. Does it pass through the origin (x=0, y=0) ? If so, the direction is /, not \.

Oh I meant it goes through (0,4) and (5,0)
