Cuemath's Rate of Change Calculator is an online tool that helps to calculate the change in slope for given coordinates.
What Is the Rate of Change Calculator?
Cuemath's online calculator helps you to calculate the rate of change in a few seconds.
How to Use the Rate of Change Calculator?
Please follow the steps below to find the rate of change:
- Step 1: Enter the coordinates of x and y in the given input box, i.e., (x1,y1) and (x2,y2).
- Step 2: Click on the "Calculate" button to find the rate of change.
- Step 3: Click on the "Reset" button to find the rate of change for different coordinate values of x and y.
How to Find the Rate of Change?
Rate of change is defined as the ratio between a change in one variable relative to a corresponding change in another. Rate of change can be either positive or negative. Slope of the line is defined as the change in the ratio of y-coordinates and x-coordinates.
Standard form for the rate of change: rate of change (or slope) = change in y variable/change in x variable = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1)
Find the rate of change or slope if the coordinates are (5,2) and (7,8).
Rate of change or slope = change in y/change in x
= (y2- y1) / (x2 - x1)
= (8 - 2) / (7 - 5)
Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the rate of change for the following:
a) (5,2) (6,2) b) (-5,2) (6,5) c) (6,-5) (7,-8)
