4 They are both 4

- Mertsj

Do you need an explanation?

- anonymous

yes please if u don't mind

- Mertsj

If you look at your picture and count the number of squares from A to D, what do you get?

- anonymous

u get 8.

- Mertsj

Count again. That's what I got the first time.

- anonymous

Now I'm getting 10 and then i got 11.

- Mertsj

Start at 0 and count the squares over to D

- anonymous

okay. i got 10

- Mertsj

Let me ask it a different way. What are the coordinated of Point D?

- 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

9

- Mertsj

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

(3,0)

- Mertsj

So AB = 3 and AD=9
What is AD/AB ?

- anonymous

9/3 so i reduce this right? and i should get 3/1

- Mertsj

Yes.

- Mertsj

What is the slope of BE?

- anonymous

Okay. i see now. Thanks for the help and srry it took so long.

- Mertsj

What is the slope of BE?

- anonymous

3/1=3

- Mertsj

Remember slope is rise over run

- Mertsj

To get from B to E how much do you have to go up?

- anonymous

4 squares and 1 over

- Mertsj

|dw:1327024739208:dw|

- anonymous

no...5 up and 1 over so it'll be 5/1

- Mertsj

5 squares up and right 1

- Mertsj

so the slope of BE is 5

- Mertsj

What is the slope of AE?

- anonymous

5 up and 3 over so that would be 5/3. I can' reduce that though

- Mertsj

Count again. Up 5 and right ???

- anonymous

oh 4.

- 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

5 over 5/4

- Mertsj

You need to simplify that.

- anonymous

okay, give me a minute

- anonymous

okay. I've tried it, but I'm not coming up with anything. :( this is frustrating.

- Mertsj

|dw:1327025177194:dw|

- anonymous
