Enter the original slope (Y/X) into the Inverse Slope Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Inverse Slope.

## Inverse Slope Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Inverse Slope.

**IS = 1 / OS**

- Where IS is the Inverse Slope ((X/Y))
- OS is the original slope (Y/X)

## How to Calculate Inverse Slope?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Inverse Slope.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the original slope (Y/X).
- The original slope (Y/X) is given as: 5/6.

- Finally, calculate the Inverse Slope using the equation above:

IS = 1 / OS

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

IS = 1 / OS = 6/5

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

original slope (Y/X) = 7/10

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

IS = 1 / OS** = ?**
