Enter the slope run and the slope rise into the Reverse Slope Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Reverse Slope.

## Reverse Slope Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Reverse Slope.

RSL = X / Y
• Where RSL is the Reverse Slope (run/rise)
• X is the slope run
• Y is the slope rise

To calculate a reverse slope, divide the slope run by the slope rise.

## How to Calculate Reverse Slope?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Reverse Slope.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the slope run.
• The slope run is given as: 50.
2. Next, determine the slope rise.
• The slope rise is provided as: 30.
3. Finally, calculate the Reverse Slope using the equation above:

RSL = X / Y

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

RSL = 50 / 30 = 1.667 (run/rise)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

slope run = 60

slope rise = 20
