Submitted by • June 26, 2012

To understand about the Slope of Tangent, we should first be familiar about the tangents and slopes. Tangent to a curve at a Point is a straight line that touches the curve only at one point. The Slope of a line can be defined as, “the Ratio of change in Y- axis (vertical axis) to that of change in X - axis (horizontal axis)”. In mathematical terms, slope is denoted by ‘m’ and can be stated as m = (change in y) / (change in x).
