Estimate Slope

The technique for determining the approximate steepness or gradient of a line on a graph.

Graph

A diagram representing numerical values or relationships between numbers, often using lines, bars, or points on axes.

Final Answer :
B
Explanation :
We can estimate the slope of the line by looking at the change in y over the change in x between any two points on the line. From the graph, we can see that if we move 1 unit to the right along the x-axis, we move approximately 2 units down along the y-axis. Therefore, the slope of the line is approximately -2.
