See below:


The steepness of a line is essentially the slope. When we see a line oriented from bottom left to upper right, it has a positive slope. A negative slope would be depicted by a line going from the upper left to bottom right.

Slope values increase the higher the number is: For instance, a line with a slope of #2# is steeper than a line with a slope of #1/2#.

Hope this helps!
