 Inclination of a Line:
The angle (0 < 180 ) measure anti-
clockwise from positive x axis to the straight line B( x2 , y2 )
l is called inclination of a line l .
 Slope or Gradient of Line A ( x1 ,y1)
The slope m of the line l is defined by:

m = tan
If A( x1 , y1 ) and B( x2 , y2 ) be any two
distinct points on the line l then
y y y y2
m= 2 1 = 1
x2 x1 x1 x2
See proof on book at page: 191
 Note: l is horizontal, iff m = 0 ( = 0 )
l is vertical, iff m = i.e. m is not defined. ( = 90 )
If slope of AB = slope of BC , then the points A, B and C are collinear
i.e. lie on the same line.
