What is the defining equation of the concept of slope?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I thought it could be rise / run = m or Y2-Y1 / X2-X1 = m but then the next question asks to give the two common forms of the mathematical equation for slope involving X and Y? So would that not be those two equations?
