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 (x1, y1) & (x2, y2) 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
(x1, y1) = (4, 4)
(x2, y2) = (6, 12)
step 2 Apply x1, y1, x2 & y2 in below slope formula.
m = y2 - y1x2 - x1
= 12 - (4)/6 - (4)
= 12 - 4/6 - 4
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
