 Slope of a line calculator is used to find the slope of a line. If we have a equation of a line, we can write that equation in the form y = mx + b. Here, we have the slope that is m. This means we can find the slope of a line from the equation of a line without having the points on the line. 


Example1: Find the slope of a line x + 3y – 3 =0

Solution 1: Here are the  steps for finding slope of equation

Step 1:- The given equation of a line is

                 x + 3y – 3= 0

Step 2: first we can shift the constant and x terms to the right side of the equality

            3y = - x + 3

Step 3: Next we can divide the equation by 3, then we get


Y= -1 ) x +3
         3

Step 4: we can compare the above equation with

            y = mx + b

Step 5: then we have


 Slope = m =  -1
                          3


Example 2: Find the slope of a line - 6x + 2y + 3 = 0

Solution 2: Here are the  steps for finding slope of equation

Step 1:- The given equation of a line is

                 -6x + 2y + 3= 0

Step 2: first we can shift the constant and x terms to the right side of the equality

            2y = 6x – 3

Step 3: Next we can divide the equation by 2, then we have


 y = 3 x – (-3)
                   2

Step 4: we can compare the above equation with

            y = mx + b

Step 5: then we have

           Slope = m = 3
