### What is Meant by Slope?

In mathematics, the slope of the line is a number which is the measure of the steepness. It means that the slope is the slant of the straight line. It is also known as the rise over the run. The slope of the line can be calculated by dividing the difference in the y coordinate by the difference in the x coordinate. Thus, the formula to calculate the slope is:

Slope, m = (y_{2} – y_{1}) / (x_{2} – x_{1})

Here,

x_{1} and x_{2} are the x coordinates

y_{1} and y_{2} are the y coordinates

There are four different types of slopes. They are:

- Positive Slope
- Negative Slope
- Zero Slope
- Undefined
