How To Find The Slope Of A Line

In general, slope is the rate at which the path rises or decreases. In other words, The slope is a number that tells how steep a line goes up and down. For example consider that your surfing on a mountain, you keep sliding on the mountain. The rate at which the steepness changes, is said as slope. If the line is from top to bottom level, the slope is at 0 (zero) and theline is exactly horizontal. If, as you go to the right, the line goes upward, we say it is sloping up or positive slope. If it goes down as we go to the right, we call that line as a negative slope.
