# Math Help - Parameterization and Slope

1. ## Parameterization and Slope

The motion of a particle has a position at time t that is given by x=f(t) and y=g(t). Hypothetically, if you are given two graphs, how could you use them to find the slope at a given point?

$\frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{\frac{dy}{dt}}{\frac{dx}{dt}}$
