Chapter 3 - Section 3.4 - The Slope of a Line - Exercise Set: 27



Work Step by Step

For a line with a positive slope, as m increases, the line becomes steeper (as shown on pg. 158). In other words, for 2 lines with positive slopes, the steeper line will have a greater slope. By looking at the graph, we can tell that $l_{2}$ is steeper than $l_{1}$, so $l_{2}$ must have a greater slope.
