Enter the rise and run of a slope into the calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the percent slope. This calculator can also evaluate the rise or run when given the other variables.

## Percent Slope Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the percentage of a slope of a line with respect to rise over run.

S = Ri / R * 100
• Where S is the percent slope
• Ri is the rise
• R is the run

To calculate a percent slope, divide the rise by the run, then multiply the result by 100.

## Percent Slope Definition

A percent slope is simply the slope of a line displayed as a percentage instead of a ratio of rise to run.

## Percent Slope Example

How to calculate percent slope?

1. First, determine the rise for every unit run.

This would be the total units y for every unit x.

2. Next, determine the run for every unit rise.

This would be the total unit x for every unit y.

3. Finally, calculate the slope percent.

Calculate the total slope percent using the values from steps 1 and 2 along with the formula.
