Re: Finding m values

"m" is the gradient of the line. You can read Equation of a Straight Line which is all about "y=mx+b", and also Gradient of a Line which explains how to figure out "m".

Re: Finding m values

Zazu, it's perfectly OK if you'd like to share a link to another maths resource and there is a dedicated subforum -- Maths Teaching Resources -- for doing just that (and we will be happy to support you in doing so).

What isn't OK is for you to pretend to ask for help, return to your post a day later and edit it to insert a hidden link to your website. It gives off the impression that you are using our forum as nothing more than a bulletin board to redirect traffic to your site. Please stop overriding my edits -- if you keep doing so I will have no choice but to restrict your access to the forum.
