    By definition, the slope is the inclination of a line in relation to the horizontal. It can be expressed in degrees, ratios and even in percent. Therefore, you can calculate it by applying the following formula:
     
     P%=(H/L)x100
     
     P% is the slope expressed in percent.
     H is the height (H=1.2 meters).
     L is the length (L=4 meters).
     
     When you substitute these values into the formula P%=(H/L)x100, you obtain the slope of the skateboard ramp:
     
     P%=(H/L)x100
     P%=(1.2 meter/4 meters)x100
     P%=0.30×100
     P%=30%
