    use the exact ratios for 60 and 30|dw:1329377367337:dw| then find tan of 60.... rise/run

    the draw triangle is a standard for trigonometry.... and tan = rise/run or the gradient the alternate solution is to find tan 60.... and it will be a decimal value, the same as square root 3

    The slope of any line is equal to the tangent of its angle of inclination. Slope is denoted by the letter m. http://www.tpub.com/math2/3.htm

    If the line forms a 60 degree angle with the x-axis, its slope is √3 or √3 /1 if you prefer that form.
