This tool calculates the slope ratio for a ramp to help you determine its steepness.

## Ramp Slope Ratio Calculator

This ramp slope ratio calculator helps you determine the slope ratio of a ramp based on its rise (vertical height) and run (horizontal distance). Simply enter the vertical rise and horizontal run, and click “Calculate” to see the slope ratio.

### How to Use:

- Enter the vertical height (rise) of the ramp in meters.
- Enter the horizontal distance (run) of the ramp in meters.
- Click the “Calculate” button to get the slope ratio.

### How It Calculates the Results:

The calculator uses the formula: `ratio = rise / run`

. The result is then displayed as a ratio of vertical to horizontal distance, simplified to “1:x” format.

### Limitations:

- Both rise and run must be numbers.
- Run must be a non-zero number to avoid division by zero.
- The calculator works best for simple slope calculations and might not cover all engineering or building code specifics.
