Examples, solutions, videos, and worksheets to help Grade 7 and Grade 8 learn how to use the slope formula to compute the slope of a non-vertical line.

The slope of a line can be calculated using any two points on the same line because the slope triangles formed are similar, and corresponding sides will be equal in ratio.

Slope is referred to as the difference in y-values compared to the difference in x-values, or as the height compared to the base of the slope triangle, or as rise over run.

The slope of a non-vertical line in a coordinate plane that passes through two different points is the number given by the difference in y-coordinates of those points divided by the difference in the corresponding x-coordinates. For two points P(p_{1},p_{2}) and R(r_{1},r_{2}) on the line where p_{1} ≠ r_{1}, the slope of the line m can be computed by the formula

m = (p_{2} - r_{2})/(p_{1} - r_{1})

The slope of a vertical line is not defined.
