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?
