# Slope of a Line Between Two Points

 1: 1: 2: 2:

Output: `Press calculate`

Formula:`m = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1)`

## Introduction to Slope of a Line Between Two Points Calculator

The slope of a line between two points is calculated by taking the difference of the y-coordinates and dividing it by the difference of the corresponding x-coordinates. In this formula, m represents the slope of the line, (x1, y1) are the coordinates of the first point, and (x2, y2) are the coordinates of the second point.

## Parameter usage:

• `x1` = x-coordinate of the first point
• `y1` = y-coordinate of the first point
• `x2` = x-coordinate of the second point
• `y2` = y-coordinate of the second point

## Example valid values:

• `(x1, y1)` = (2, 4)
• `(x2, y2)` = (6, 10)

## Output:

• `m` = slope of the line

## Data validation

The difference of x-coordinates should not be zero to avoid division by zero error.

## Summary

This calculator determines the slope of a line given two points.
