In this paper, the sufficient conditions for the linear combinations of slanted half-plane harmonic mappings to be univalent and convex in the direction of $(-\gamma) $ are studied. Our result improves some recent works. Furthermore, a illustrative example and imagine domains of the linear combinations satisfying the desired conditions are enumerated.
