Enter the rise and run of a slope into the calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the percent slope.
Percent Slope Formula
The following formula is used to calculate the percentage of a slope of a line with respect to rising over run.
% S = Ri / R * 100
- Where %S is the percent slope
- Ri is the rise
- R is the run
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?
- First, determine the rise for every unit run.
This would be the total units y for every unit x.
- Next, determine the run for every unit rise.
This would be the total units x for every unit y.
- Finally, calculate the slope percent.
Calculate the total slope percent using the values from steps 1 and 2 along with the formula.
A percent slope is a measure of a slope with a base of 100, also known as a percentage.
