Slope is generally considered as ratio of the vertical rise to the horizontal run between any two points on a line. It is usually referred to as RISE over RUN.

FORMULA FOR FINDING SLOPE:

When we have two points on a line like A (X1, Y1) and B(X2, Y2) we use the following formula:
SLOPE =   RISE =   Y2– Y1
RUN        X2 – X1

Slope Form Calculator is used to find the slope of line from the coordinates of line.

Example 1.

Find the Slope of the line between two points (-4, 8) and (10, -4).
Solution:
Here we use the formula m =Y2 – Y1
X2– X1
Now putting the values from the question in the formula (-4) – (8)
(10) – (-4)
Now we simplify the expression
(-4) – (8) = -4 - 8   =-12=    -6
(10) – (-4) 10+4      14        7

So, we get slope as   -6
7

Example 2.

Find the slope of the line between the two points (8, 12) and (-8, -2).
Solution:

Here we use the formula m =Y2 – Y1
X2– X1
Now putting the values from the question in the formula (-2) - (12)
(-8) – (8)
Now we simplify the expression
(-2) – (12)=  -2  -  12  =-14 = 7
(-8)– (8)         -8 – 8    -16     8

So, we get slope as   7
