Find the gradient of the line that passes through Point A $\left(-1,0\right)$(−1,0) and Point B $\left(0,3\right)$(0,3) using $m=\frac{\text{rise }}{\text{run }}$`m`=rise run .

Find the gradient of the line that passes through Point A $\left(2,-6\right)$(2,−6) and the origin using $m=\frac{\text{rise }}{\text{run }}$`m`=rise run .

Find the gradient of the line that passes through Point A $\left(3,5\right)$(3,5) and Point B $\left(1,8\right)$(1,8), using $m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$`m`=`y`2−`y`1`x`2−`x`1.
