• Slopes by Michael Akanji
• Slopes Definition- A gradient of a line that describes the line's steepness, incline, or grade. Types of Slopes    - Positive slope                         - Zero Slope       - Negative slope                        - Undefined Slope      - Steeper slope                         - Flatter Slope
• Positive slope
