In mathematics, the slope of a line describes its steepness, incline, or grade. A higher slope value indicates a steeper incline.

The slope is defined as the ratio of the "rise" divided by the "run" between two points on a line, or in other words, the ratio of the altitude change to the horizontal distance between any two points on the line.

Given two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) on a line, the slope m of the line is

The slope of a line is defined as the rise over the run, m = Δy/Δx.

Slope is frequently used in Mathematics. It can also be used to actually find how steep a particular line is, or it can be used to show how much something has changed over time.

Slope is mathematically defined as the rise over the run. This is written as a fraction (ratio) like this:

Slope = Rise / Run

Where the Rise means the change on the Y-axis of the coordinate system (either changed up or down); the Run means the change on the X-axis of the coordinate system (either changed left or right);

To calculate the Slope of a line:

1. Find two points on the line.

2. Count the rise (How many units do you count up or down to get from one point to the next?) Record this number as your numerator.

3. Count the run (How many units do you count left or right to get to the point?) Record this number as your denominator.

4. Simplify your fraction if possible.

Note:

1) If you count up or right your number is positive.

2) If you count down or left your number is negative.

We can tell whether a line's slope is big or small,

and whether the slope is positive or negative.

But if we want to compare two big slopes, or two small slopes,

we need a more exact definition of slope.
