  1. slope is rise/run or (the change in y)/(change in x)

    so suppose you have a line with the point (4,-6) on it, and it has a slope of 5/7
    so the change in y is 5 for a change in x of 7
    so add 5 to the y , and 7 to the x to get (11, -1)

    check: what is the slope between (4,-6) and (11,-1) ??
    slope = (-1 + 6)/11-4) = 5/7

    You can use the above method for every case.
