The first thing we are going to do before entering fully into the analysis of the pending term is to clearly establish its etymological origin. In this sense, we have to underline that this word comes from Latin and specifically from the verb pendere, which can be translated as "hanging."
Pending It is a term that has different uses and meanings. As an adjective, you can refer to something that is inclined or in decline at matter to be completed or resolved , already one who is attentive or worried about something that happens . For example:: “If you want to climb the mountain, you have to be very careful with the slope”, “The pending terrain is always a challenge when driving”, “I have a pending task at the office”, “Sport is an outstanding activity for me”, "When the president's speech began, there were more than a hundred people in the auditorium who were awaiting the statements", “Are you looking for grandpa? He is in front of the television, pending the news about the increase in retirement ”.
The pending term can also be used as a masculine noun. In this case, it is the jewel that is hanging or of earring or hoop : “My husband gave me a gold earring”, “Micaela is worried because she can't find the earrings she used at the last party”, “My daughter wants earrings for Christmas”.
It is a type of jewel that has its origin in ancient times because it has already been discovered that during the Bronze Age, human beings made use of earrings of this type. In their case, they were used to decorate the nose, which today would be a piercing.
In the same way, the fact that pending is a term used in the field of heraldry should not be overlooked. Where appropriate, it is used to refer to the lower part that exists in the flags or in the different types of shields.
In addition to all this we have to make clear the existence of a series of terms that also resort to the use of the word that concerns us now. This would be the case of the expression pending subject. It has two meanings. Thus, on the one hand, it comes to refer to that matter that a student has not been able to approve and that leads him to have to submit to a new subsequent call to overcome it.
On the other hand, the term pending subject is also used to refer to all that issue or issue that remains unresolved. An example of this meaning can be the following: The Government of the country has as its pending subject the problem of unemployment.
For the mathematics , the slope is the inclination of a element (natural, ideal or constructive) with respect to the horizontal. The slope of a line is the degree of inclination. Can be positive (it is increasing since, when increasing the values of X, the values of Y increase), negative (by increasing the values of X, the values of Y decrease; therefore, it is decreasing) or null (it is a constant line).
