This article is about a GeoGebra tool. You can find a list of all tools on this page. If you are searching help how to use tools in general you should read the manual page about tools.

This tool gives you the slope of a line and shows a slope triangle in the Graphics View (also see command Slope).

Position of the slope triangle[edit]

For a line defined by points A and B (in this order) using Mode join.svg Line Tool or Line Command, the slope triangle is placed to point A. For line l defined using input line (entered as equation, e.g. l:x+2y=3), the triangle is placed at the y-intercept (point on l with zero x-coordinate). If you want to place the triangle elsewhere, you can follow these instructions.

1 select Mode join.svg Line Tool, click the line l in two points to create points C and D; new line will be created at the same time
2 use Mode slope.svgSlope Tool on the newly created line
3 hide point D
4 move C to adjust position of the slope triangle
