## What is Pending:

**Earring** can refer to something **that hangs, that hangs, that is suspended**. It can also designate something that is inclined, the slope or decline of a piece of land, a plane or an axis.

The word, as such, comes from the old active participle of* hang*which in turn derives from the Latin *pendens*, *pending*.

On the other hand, slope can also refer to a** matter or thing that is to be resolved or finished**: “The signatures of the authorities are still pending.”

Pending can also refer to being **attentive or concerned about something**waiting for their results: “We were all waiting for you, what happened?”

Finally, an earring is also a** earring, earring or hoop**, which may or may not have decorations and are made of different materials and shapes. As such, it is used to adorn the body. The place where it is most commonly worn is in the ears.

## Slope in Geometry

In geometry, it is the measure of the inclination of a line or a plane.

### slope of a line

The slope of a line is the degree of inclination that is registered in a line, represented in mathematical operations with the letter* m*. Thus, the slope of a line would be the difference on the Y axis divided by the difference on the X axis for two different points on a line.

### Upward sloping

The slope of a line is positive when the line is increasing, that is, when the values on the X and Y axis increase. Its analytical expression would be *m* > 0.

### negative slope

The slope of a line is negative when the line is decreasing, that is, when the values in X increase and those in Y decrease. Its analytical expression is *m* < 0.

## Slope in Topography

As slope is called the degree of inclination of a land in relation to the horizontal of a slope. In this sense, the steeper the incline, the greater the slope.
