### Slope Calculator

#### Calculate Slope (m) between Two Points

### How to Calculate Slope Using the Calculator

**Navigate to the Page with the Calculator**:- Open your web browser and go to the page where you added the Slope Calculator shortcode (e.g.,
`yourwebsite.com/your-page`

).

- Open your web browser and go to the page where you added the Slope Calculator shortcode (e.g.,
**Select Calculation Type**:**2 Points are Known**: Choose this option if you have the coordinates of two points on a line. The calculator will compute the slope (m) using these two points.**1 Point and the Slope are Known**: Choose this option if you know one point on the line and the slope (m). The calculator will find the y-intercept (b) for you.

**Input Values**:- Depending on your selection, different fields will appear:

**For “2 Points are Known”:**- Enter the coordinates of the two points:
**Point 1 (x1, y1)**: Fill in the x- and y-coordinates of the first point.**Point 2 (x2, y2)**: Fill in the x- and y-coordinates of the second point.

- Click
**Calculate Slope**to find the slope.

**For “1 Point and the Slope are Known”:**- Enter the x- and y-coordinates of the known point.
- Enter the
**Slope (m)**of the line. - Click
**Calculate Y-Intercept**to find the y-intercept (b) of the line.

**View the Result**:- The result will appear below the form, showing the slope (m) or y-intercept (b), depending on your calculation type.

**Clear Fields**(optional):- To clear all input fields and the output result, click
**Clear**. Alternatively, switching between calculation types will also clear the fields.

### Example Scenarios

#### Example 1: Calculate Slope When “2 Points are Known”

**Input**:- Point 1 (x1, y1): (2, 3)
- Point 2 (x2, y2): (5, 11)

**Result**: Slope (m) will display as**2.67**.

#### Example 2: Calculate Y-Intercept When “1 Point and the Slope are Known”

**Input**:- Point (x, y): (2, 3)
- Slope (m): 2

**Result**: Y-Intercept (b) will display as**-1**.

This guide should help you easily calculate slopes and y-intercepts using your calculator.
