# Slope of a Straight Line Calculator

getcalc.com's **Slope of a Line Formula & 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.__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

## Definition & Formula
