Enter the elevation gain (ft) and the horizontal distance (ft) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Incline Rate.

## Incline Rate Formula

INCR = EG / HD

Variables:

- INCR is the Incline Rate (ft/ft)
- EG is the elevation gain (ft)
- HD is the horizontal distance (ft)

To calculate Incline Rate, divide the elevation gain by the horizontal distance.

## How to Calculate Incline Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Incline Rate.

- First, determine the elevation gain (ft).
- Next, determine the horizontal distance (ft).
- Next, gather the formula from above = INCR = EG / HD.
- Finally, calculate the Incline Rate.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

elevation gain (ft) = 100

horizontal distance (ft) = 200
