The change in y over the change in x, or the rise of a line over the run or if you are talking about a real life example, the rate of change. For example, if I buy tshirts at 5 dollars each my rate is 5 per shirt or 5/1 the rise is 5 and the run is 1.

In your chart the slope is not going up or down if you look at the dotted line. So the rate is not changing. So if y is 84 at one point and still 84 at another point, the slope is 84-84 / change in x .

if you look closely at the line it is slightly downward.

slope tells us an approximation of the limit, or as we take x-values that go to infinity, the value the behavior of the function will approach. It is the rate of change of a function. In this case, as we keep calculating the pitch speed/# of pitches, we see that it estimates to about 82, or whatever that line is.
