The **Slope** calculator compute the slope of a line between two points.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Enter the following:

- (
**x**) This is the x coordinate of the first point._{1} - (
**y**) This is the y coordinate of the first point._{1} - (
**x**) This is the x coordinate of the second point._{2} - (
**y**) This is the y coordinate of the second point._{2}

**Slope of a Line:** The utility returns the slope as a real number. However, this can be automatically converted to a percentage via the pull-down menu.

#### The Math / Science

This calculator provides the slope of the line between two points, (x_{1} , y_{1}) and ( x_{2} , y_{2}) in a Cartesian plane. The slope is also known as the rise over the run. The formula for the slope between two points is

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

where:

- s is the slope
- (x
_{1}y_{1}) are the coordinates of one point - (x
_{2}y_{2}) are the coordinates of another point
