This mini-lesson explains the concept of slope and shows how to determine the slope from the standard form of equation of a line: y = mx + b. Slope is a measure of the steepness or slant of a line, and when you are asked to calculate the slope of a given line, rearrange the equation in the standard form given by y = mx + b. In this form, m is the slope of the equation.
