See fig 1. slope of a line, here OM  is the measure of degree of slanting.
It is measured by: u can take any point on OM and drop perpendicular from the point on the x axis, then a right triangle will be formed as it is formed here OMN, then  the ratio of perpendicular to base is the measure of slope.
ie slope in this case is=MN/ON=b/a  this ratio will be maximum in case of OS so will be the slope.
