# How to Find Velocity-Time Graph from Position-Time Graph?

1. Homework Statement
Not too necessary to follow this format, but here is my question: I know I probably shouldn't ask such a simple question, but how do I find a velocity-time graph from a position-time graph? I know it's just slope, but I'm looking at a curve, and I don't want to differentiate it. I also know that this is probably not as difficult as I'm making it, but I'm completely blanking on this one. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

You are right that it is the slope at each point, so just look at delta-y / delta-x at each point.
