which slope had greater value ... say eg , betn 1/2 and-1/2.
or they have same magnitude,
its just that they are opp in sign??
if two slopes , 1 +ve and 1 -ve is given, comparision is done based on their absolute values is it?

ALSO , BET TWO LINES HAVING SLOPE OF -1/2 AND -3/4, WHICH HAS GREATER SLOPE?
i think here -1/2>-3/4, unlike where conventionally , 3/4>1/2...
see, why this concept is important is bcos of the prob here...

I was going to reply with- Ignore the signs, i.e take the absolute values, in which case, -3/4>-1/2

After reading the example you attached, I think what you mentioned is correct, -1/2>-3/4.

Any other comments from others?
