IN MATH: 1. n. a number representing the "tilt" or inclination (symbol m). 2. the ratio of vertical change to horizontal change; "change in y over change in x." EX. Vertical lines have no slope.

IN ENGLISH: 1. v. tilt. 2. n. inclined side. EX. The hill has a grassy, flowered slope.

APPLICATION: See list 240.

1. Compute the slope of a line containing (2,5) and (-1, 2).
