Enter the coordinates of point 1 and the coordinates of point 2 into the Two Point Slope Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Two Point Slope.

## Two Point Slope Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Two Point Slope.

TPS  = (Y2-Y1) / (X2-X1)

• Where TPS is the Two Point Slope (y/x)
• X1,Y1 is the coordinates of point 1
• X2,Y2 is the coordinates of point 2

## How to Calculate Two Point Slope?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Two Point Slope.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the coordinates of point 1.
• The coordinates of point 1 is given as: (4,5).
2. Next, determine the coordinates of point 2.
• The coordinates of point 2 is provided as: (10,12).
3. Finally, calculate the Two Point Slope using the equation above:

TPS  = (Y2-Y1) / (X2-X1)

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

TPS  = (12-5) / (10-4) = 7/6 (y/x)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

coordinates of point 1 = (6,6)

coordinates of point 2 = (14,20)

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