myininaya? The slope of a railway is expressed as a percent and is called the grade of the road. At the Royal Gorge, in Colorado, an inclined railway takes visitors down to the arkansas river. If the grade is 175% and the vertical drop of the railway is 1015 feet, what is the horizontal change of the railway?

ok so slope is rise/run \[1.75=\frac{rise}{run}=\frac{1015}{run}\]
We need to solve \[1.75=\frac{1015}{run}\] for run
run is the horizontal change

okay and then?
is that all??
\[1.75 run=1015\]
yes just divide both sides by 1.75
and that's the answer??
whatever 1015/1.75 is yes
105?
that is the horizontal change?
yes
i get 580
1015/1.75 is what i did
ohh careless mistake. Thank you!~
