# Slope Calculator

'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., (x_{1},y_{1}) and (x_{2},y_{2}).**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 = (y_{2 }- y_{1}) / (x_{2} - x_{1})

**Solved Example:**

Find the slope if the coordinates are (5,2) and (7,8).

**Solution:**

slope = change in y/change in x

= (y_{2}- y_{1}) / (x_{2} - x_{1})

= (8 - 2) / (7 - 5)

=6/2

=3

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)
