The change in y coordinate with respect to the x coordinate of the line is known as the slope of that line. Basically, it is the measure of the direction and steepness of the line. Based on the relationship of the two variables i.e x and y, we can classify slopes into different types. Some of them are: positive slope, negative slope, undefined slope and zero slope. Understanding about the types of slope can help the students to predict whether the line is parallel or perpendicular or none.
