Given two co-ordinates, find the slope of a straight line.
Input : x1 = 4, y1 = 2, x2 = 2, y2 = 5 Output : Slope is -1.5
Approach: To calculate the slope of a line you need only two points from that line, (x1, y1) and (x2, y2). The equation used to calculate the slope from two points is:
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
Slope is: -1.5
- Find points at a given distance on a line of given slope
- Slope of the line parallel to the line with the given slope
- Slope of perpendicular to line
- Program to find the mid-point of a line
- Program to find line passing through 2 Points
- Find the other end point of a line with given one end and mid
- Find an Integer point on a line segment with given two ends
- Find Partition Line such that sum of values on left and right is equal
- Find foot of perpendicular from a point in 2 D plane to a Line
- Given n line segments, find if any two segments intersect
- Program to find sum of 1 + x/2! + x^2/3! +...+x^n/(n+1)!
- Program to find the sum of a Series (1*1) + (2*2) + (3*3) + (4*4) + (5*5) + ... + (n*n)
- Program to find LCM of 2 numbers without using GCD
- Program to find sum of series 1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/4 + .. + 1/n
- Program to find LCM of two numbers
