Slope Calculator calculates the estimated monthly payment for student loans and compares it to the projected earnings for career choice. The results will indicate how much can be borrowed comfortably based upon the career. Slope, sometimes alluded to as gradient in mathematics, is a number that measures the steepness and direction of a line, connecting two points, and is usually denoted by m. Mainly slope changes in height over change in horizontal distance, and is often referred to as “rise over run”.

### How to Use Slope Calculator

The following steps should be mentioned:

1. Calculate the slope of a line that passes through 2 points

2. Solve a coordinate given the slope and distance from a point

3. Find the x or y of a point given another point and the slope

4. Find the slope intercept form of a line

Slope is fun. For instance, it can determine the percentage of student loans. It is the amount of the student loan payments divided by the projected first-year earnings or income. SLOPE also has a budget worksheet to help to plan the future income and expenses after the graduate.
