I wrote this wrong on my last post, it should have read,
On a graph, what is the slope of
(2,0); (0,1)?

You can do this a couple of ways. Since slope is rise/run, you can plot the points then count up or down then back or forth to determine slope.
A method that always works is plug your points into this formula (hopefully I can write it so you understand:))
y (two)  y (one)/x (two)  x (one)
Take the 2nd y point which is 1 and subtract the 1st y point which is 0
Then, the sceond x point which is 0
minus the 1st x point which is 2
The numerator is therefore 1  0
The denominator is 0  (2)
The slope will be 1/2
Hope you can understand!
