When you are graphing line in slopeintercept form, changing the slope changes the angle of the line as well. I've plot points, give a ~ looking shape, but I no idea what the equation for it is, any ideas?

Is 31415269 supposed to be an approximate value for $\displaystyle 10000000\pi$?

Ummm... not exactly, the graphing calculator I use disagrees. Its more of a tan(x) type a thing. About my user name, kinda pi is about 3.14152926 while my username is 31415269. So, yeah, kinda. Last edited by 31415269; August 21st, 2015 at 11:57 AM.

Actually, nevermind tan(x) doesn't work either. Someone else come help!

A curve doesn't have the equation of a straight line. And your vague description doesn't give enough information to guess the equation.

I don't think you understand the question and, here, have a link: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/eirexu84ux

You titled this thread "Relationship between m and angle" and your first post said Quote:
Now, it appears that that was not at all what you meant! Please tell us what "m" you are talking about.

Yes, so what is 31415926's question?? (If this was supposed to be the 10000000 times $\displaystyle \pi$ you have a digit out of place.) Last edited by Country Boy; August 22nd, 2015 at 12:56 PM.

Reply to Country Boy: My question is, to restate: What is the formula/equation of the curve created where the x coordinates represent the slope of a straight line and the y coordinates represent the angle of said straight line.
