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