See also our right triangle calculator. Do you have a linear equation or system of equations and looking for its solution? Or do you have quadratic equation? For Basic calculations in analytic geometry is helpful line slope calculator. From coordinates of two points in the plane it calculate slope, normal and parametric line equation(s), slope, directional angle, direction vector, the length of segment, intersections the coordinate axes etc.
