The slope shall be derived from a straight line with a gradient triangle in the coordinate system.


The slope shall be derived from a straight line with a gradient triangle in the coordinate system. (Example for this math problem)


For a given straight line, the slope is to be determined by reading dx and dy from a given slope triangle. The straight line is provided with a slope triangle in a coordinate system with the problem statement. The triangle is labeled "dx" for the run and "dy" for the rise. The task requires that the values read off be properly written in a fraction, reduced to lowest terms if necessary and thus the slope determined.

The intersection of the line and the Y-axis can be chosen to lie on only full or also half coordinate plane squares (vertical divisions).

With respect to the coordinate system, it can be set whether only quadrant one is to be covered with positive X and Y coordinates, or also the quadrants containing coordinates with negative signs. The coordinate system can be plotted in three different sizes.

The slope is chosen randomly, but can also be restricted to be positive or negative only
