Line Questions and Answers (Q&A)

Slope, in mathematics, is the climb or measure between two points on an allotted line. Slope also calculates the "steepness" of the line. The slope consists of two pairs of points or coordinates that are represented by variables in the form of letters X and Y. Any change in the variable "Y" will influence the "X" variable. The slope, lines, and points are arranged on a chart with integers ( positive and negative) on both X and Y-axis.

Zero is positioned in the middle of the graph and lies in the intersection of both the Y and X-axis. With a zero slope, the numerator is zero, which signifies the Y points and creates a difference of zero linking the variables. Zero divided by any non-zero denominator will be zero. A straight, vertical line illustrates an undefined slope on the graph with the X coordinate points having no existing value of the slope.
