Dear Teja,

Consider a function as :  y = f(x).

now if you find the rate of range of this particular function with respect to x:

i.e   dy/dx ; then this rate of change is known as slope.

In more simpler words consider follwing values:

at x = 3     :   y = 7

at x = 5     :   y = 10

So change in y   = 10 - 7 = 3.

and change in x  = 5 -3 = 2.

So slope can also be defined as :    change in y / change in x

                                                   =   3/2 = 1.5.

I hope now you have understood the concept of slope. provides online iit jee courses and IIT JEE Test Series with IITians. Click here to get free online test series and check your status timely or you can join us as our registered user for getting best iit jee study material or iit jee test series.
