    Do you know the normal day to day sense of the word "slope"?

    Perpendicular lines have slopes that are the negative multiplicative inverse of each other.

    There is NO number that is equal to its negative inverse.

    In maths too the word more or less means the same.

    So what do you think? Is the statement true or false?

    I did not say you got something wrong. I just don't understand the following sentence: "In maths too the word more or less means the same."

    In maths too the word ("slope") more or less means the same(as in day to day use..)

    I have no idea what you are talking about. Slope does not mean "the same". The slope of a linear function tells you the rate of change of the function with respect to its variable.
