Do you need an explanation?

yes please if u don't mind

If you look at your picture and count the number of squares from A to D, what do you get?
anonymous
  • anonymous
u get 8.
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
Count again. That's what I got the first time.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Now I'm getting 10 and then i got 11.
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
Start at 0 and count the squares over to D
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay. i got 10
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
Let me ask it a different way. What are the coordinated of Point D?
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
coordinates
anonymous

(0,9) I started from 0 and i counted over. I don't mean to annoy you, i just started geometry so I'm not getting it yet.

What is Point D?
anonymous
  • anonymous
9

D is (9,0) So from A to D is 9. So the length of AD is 9. What is the length of AB?
anonymous
  • anonymous
(3,0)
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
So AB = 3 and AD=9 What is AD/AB ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
9/3 so i reduce this right? and i should get 3/1
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
Yes.
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
What is the slope of BE?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay. i see now. Thanks for the help and srry it took so long.
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
What is the slope of BE?
anonymous
  • anonymous
3/1=3
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
Remember slope is rise over run
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
To get from B to E how much do you have to go up?
anonymous
  • anonymous
4 squares and 1 over
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
|dw:1327024739208:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
no...5 up and 1 over so it'll be 5/1
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
5 squares up and right 1
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
so the slope of BE is 5
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
What is the slope of AE?
anonymous
  • anonymous
5 up and 3 over so that would be 5/3. I can' reduce that though
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
Count again. Up 5 and right ???
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh 4.
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
So the slope of BE is 5 and the slope of AE is 5/4. What is the slope of BE over the slope of AE?
anonymous
  • anonymous
5 over 5/4
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
You need to simplify that.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, give me a minute
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay. I've tried it, but I'm not coming up with anything. :( this is frustrating.
