The slope will be a small positive number for a fairly flat upward-sloping line, a large positive number for a steep upward-sloping line, and a negative number for a downward-sloping line. A horizontal line has a slope of zero because in this case the y-variable never changes; a vertical line is defined to have an infinite slope because the y-variable can take any value without the x-variable changing at all.

The slope of the line is the ratio of the change in the y-coordinate (Ϫ2) to the change in the x-coordinate (ϩ8), which equals Ϫ1/4. 4 3 2 1 0 5 10 13 15 20 21 25 30 Quantity of Novels Purchased TLFeBOOK 40 42 Thinking Like an Economist PA R T O N E INTRODUCTION of whether they are cheap or expensive.
