4 Extrapolation from the plotted points to find the intercepts of a straight line on the y axis (a positive value in this example) and on the x axis (a negative value here). dy dx y dy dx 0 x Fig. 5 The gradient of a straight line is the change in y for a given increase of x. The units of the gradient are the units of y divided by the units of x. x increased). Notice that the gradient can be measured anywhere along the line and that taking a large or a small increment of x will yield the same value for the gradient (though the large increment will have greater accuracy).

4). Finding the gradient of a straight line is also simple (see Fig. 5), but the gradient of a curved line changes along its length and so the value of the gradient depends on where it is measured (see Fig. 6). g. y = 2x + 5; y = x2 – 3) then intercepts (the value of y when x = 0 or of x when y = 0) and gradients can usually be found more easily by calculation than by drawing a graph (see Chapter 4). In Fig. 5 the gradient is positive, but if the line had sloped down from left to right then the gradient would have been negative (y decreasing as 14 Graphs y 0 x Fig.
