There is nothing else. I just need some help.

First you need to know that to find the slope the equations must be linearly related. This is stated in your question.

Slope is found through determining the change in f(x) and dividing by the change in x.

This can be written as: _{m=} f(x)_{2}-f(x)_{1}

x_{2}-x_{1}

So looking at your problem: f(x+4)-f(x)=32

We know that: x_{2}=x+4 and x_{1}=x

We are then able to substitute our knowns to solve for slope m.

_{m= }f(x)_{2-}f(x)_{1 = }f(x+4)-f(x)_{ = }_ 32 __{ =
} 32 _{ = }32_{ = 8
} x_{2}-x_{1 }(x+4)-(x) x+4-x x-x+4 4

Thus your slope, m=8.

You can rewrite any similar f(x) equations that need to have the slope solved into the above format and solve for m. By breaking the problem down into its smaller parts you can tackle and solve any math problem.

Nice sweet thinking man's answer, Patrick,with no equations needed or really manipulations. [slope = rise/run is the concept]

Where did you get your math degree; there in Rochester Tech?
