# Slope of a Straight Line Calculator

getcalc.com's **line slope calculator** is an online geometry tool to calculate straight line slope based on the points (x_{1}, y_{1}) & (x_{2}, y_{2}) on the plane, in both US customary & metric (SI) units.

## Steps to Find Slope of a Straight Line

The step by step workout for how to find what is the slope of a straight line. Students may use this line slope calculator to generate work with steps for any other similar input values.__Workout :__

step1 Address the formula, input parameters and values

(x_{1}, y_{1}) = (4, 4)

(x_{2}, y_{2}) = (6, 12)

step 2 Apply x_{1}, y_{1}, x_{2} & y_{2} in below slope formula.

m = y_{2} - y_{1}x_{2} - x_{1}

= 12 - (4)/6 - (4)

= 12 - 4/6 - 4

= 8/2

slope m = 4

## Line Slope & Formula

**Slope of a Line** generally represented on a two dimensional plane, is a surface of line's one end is higher or lower than the other end. K-12 students may refer the below formula to know what are all the input parameters are being used to find the slope of a straight line.

### Problems on Slope of a Straight Line

- Find what is the slope of a line passing through two points (8, 10) (-7, 14) on XY plane?
- The line on X Y plane is passing through the points (-3, 1) and (-17, 2), find what is the slope of that line?
- Find the slope of the line that passes through the points (0, 2) and (4, 3) on X Y plane?
- What is the slope of a line that passes though point 1 (1, 7) and point 2 (10, 1) on XY plane?
