About This Quiz & Worksheet

Finding and applying the slope of a line requires knowledge of how to set up and solve equations with x and y variables. This quiz and worksheet combo will help you test your understanding of defining and applying the slope of a line using these equations. These practice questions will test you on defining the slope of lines in multiple practice problems.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

As part of these assessments, you'll be specifically tested on how you can define the slope of a line given certain points which a line will pass through on a graph or an equation that will define a line on a graph. These problems will require the use of the slope formula and changing equations to slope-intercept form.

Skills Practiced

This quiz and worksheet will allow you to test your skills in the following areas:

  • Knowledge application- use your knowledge to answer questions that require you to change lines to slope-intercept form
  • Problem solving - use your acquired knowledge to solve slope practice problems given points on the line
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding line slopes and apply it to practice problems

Additional Learning

Go through the lesson entitled How to Find and Apply The Slope of a Line. With this lesson, you'll have access to information to help you:

  • Understand how to define the slope of a line given the equation of the line or points on the graphic representation of the line
