1. The gradient of a straight line describes the slope of the line. In the equation y = 5x – 2, the coefficient of x, which is 5, represents the gradient of the line. This means that for every unit increase in x, the value of y will increase by 5 units. The slope of a line can be positive, negative, zero, or undefined, depending on the values of the coefficients.
For example, if the equation of the line is y = -3x + 4, the gradient would be -3. This means that the line has a negative slope, and for every unit increase in x, the value of y will decrease by 3 units.

On the other hand, if the equation of the line is y = 0x + 5, the gradient would be 0. This means that the line is horizontal and has no slope.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
