Flatter demand curve of elasticity of demand shows that slightly change in the price of the commodity lead to a larger change in the quantity demanded. Steeper demand curve of elasticity of demand shows that large change in the price of the commodity lead to a smaller change in the quantity demanded.

## What is the difference between steeper and flatter?

Flatter demand curve of elasticity of demand shows that slightly change in the price of the commodity lead to a larger change in the quantity demanded. Steeper demand curve of elasticity of demand shows that large change in the price of the commodity lead to a smaller change in the quantity demanded.

**What is a flatter slope?**

Suppose the slope of a line were to decrease. Then it would get flatter. These conditions are true whether or not the slope was positive or negative to begin with. A higher positive slope means a steeper upward tilt to the line, while a smaller positive slope means a flatter upward tilt to the line.

**What does it mean when a slope is steeper?**

adjective. A steep slope rises at a very sharp angle and is difficult to go up.

### What is the opposite of steep slope?

Selected answer: gentle slope.

**Is Shallow opposite of steep?**

Neither shallow nor gentle are the opposite of steep, but rather words we make do with because there is no actual word for what we mean; when asked the opposite of gentle or shallow we wouldn’t naturally say steep, but harsh or deep respectively.

**Does higher slope mean steep?**

The greater the slope, the steeper the line. The next example shows a line with a negative slope. Find the slope of the line graphed below.

#### What is the trend of the graph if the slope is positive?

If a line has a positive slope (i.e. m > 0), then y always increases when x increases and y always decreases when x decreases. Thus, the graph of the line starts at the bottom left and goes towards the top right.

**What does lesser slope mean?**

A higher positive slope means a steeper upward tilt to the line, while a smaller positive slope means a flatter upward tilt to the line.

**Is a higher slope steeper?**

The greater the slope, the steeper the line. The next example shows a line with a negative slope.

## What is the opposite of steep math?

opposite of steep slope. small slope. Explanation: If you’re describing a graph, then you can simply say “small slope”, meaning that the slope has a small value. It’s a very common way of saying it in math.

**What is opposite to steep slope?**

**What is another word for less steep?**

What is another word for not steep?

gradual | gentle |
---|---|

moderate | slight |

easy | imperceptible |

subtle |

### What does a steeper graph means?

A steeper slope in a graph means that the rate of change is faster.

**What are positive and negative slopes?**

If the line is sloping upward from left to right, so the slope is positive (+). If the line is sloping downward from left to right, so the slope is negative (-). In our pizza example, a positive slope tells us that as the number of toppings we order (x) increases, the total cost of the pizza (y) also increases.

**Is a smaller slope steeper?**

A higher positive slope means a steeper upward tilt to the line, while a smaller positive slope means a flatter upward tilt to the line. A negative slope that is larger in absolute value (that is, more negative) means a steeper downward tilt to the line.

#### What are the different types of slopes on a graph?

Slopes come in 4 different types: negative, positive, zero, and undefined. as x increases. The slope of a line can also be interpreted as the “average rate of change”.

**What is a concave slope?**

A terrain feature that is rounded inward like the inside of a bowl, i.e. goes from more steep to less steep.

Antonyms for steep slope include gentle incline, gentle slope, gradual incline, gradual slope and level ground. Find more opposite words at wordhippo.com!

**Why is the slope of a steep curve more than a flat?**

Hence ch. in y is more in steep curve rather than in flat curve. So slope of steep curve is more. It indicates inelastic nature. Steeper curve makes a greater angel and hence has a greater slope than a flatter curve.

## What is the steepness of a graph?

The slope IS the steepness of the graph: it is the measure of how quickly the height of the graph (the y-coordinate) changes with respect to the change of the horizontal measure (the x-coordinate). Which is steeper? If line p has a slope of 2/4 and line r has a slope of -2 , which of the two lines is steeper? Explain your answer.

**What is the difference between shallower and steeper slope?**

Steeper slope of line is reverse of shallower slope . steeper the slope of line it makes more angle with x axis.
