The person is asking you if you know what a slope is.
Lol, I have seen the attachment, and I know the answer, but I want you to understand it
Thanks RyanL lol
I do not understand this question... and i posted it here because I wanted an explanation. can you please help me.. thank you!
Umm one explanation is\[\frac{rise}{run}=slope\] Where you pick two point and determine how much you need to travel to get one point to the other Rise would be how high or low you go Run is how far you go to the left or right.
ohhh but i still dont get it
What don't you get? Do you know how to count?
Do you even know how to divide?
|dw:1345071480215:dw|so you know what that is?
See we can't help you if you are not specific about what your confused about
i am not a baby miss lefay
The slope of a line is the "rise" divided by the "run", meaning how high you go up the y-axis divided by how far you run down the x- axis
yes i understand that part
but its so confusing how do you go up then go to the left!
Um, I didn't call you a baby or mean to insult you. If you're insulted then I apologize.
See the lines i drew. How many times does it go down and how many times does it go to the right?
Imagine you are driving your car from the origin (0, 0). You drive straight up the y-axis, and then you turn right on the x-axis
I'll let RyanL handle this one... He's taking you in the right direction xoxo
From (0,3) to (0,0) how many times did we move?
ryan why are you so mean
i was in need of help and yet you were asking someone clueless girl if they know how to divide of course i know the basics
i think you moved 3 spaces
Yes you are correct but since you moved 3 spaces down it's a negative -3 so rise= -3 Write that down.
Now from (0,0) to (9,0) how many spaces do you move?
9 spaces
Yes and since we are going to the right this time it will be positive so run=9
okay and do yuou divide after?
\[\frac{rise}{run}\] Now plug those values into the fraction
and what do you get?
is that it -1/3?
yes but you can also simplify that
A three from the top cancels one from the bottom
i know
what do you get then?
how do you simplify -1/3! Ryan
Now you can't I told you have to simplify -3/9
I thought you didnt know hot to do that that's why
ugh im not that stupid!
Sorry I don't know what level of math you are in so sorry
no you were being a jerk
I'm not being a jerk. I helped you out and this is how you respond?
no no im thankful but you were being really mean
Sorry I didn't see that you wrote -1/3 until after I went up to see it.
I only saw that you wrote -3/9 my bad
Are u in college
yup yup!
see thats why im in high school so there is a differece
It's ok I remember when I had problems in HS and I still do. Math is not easy so be happy that you can do this type of work. For some people it's even harder. Good job!
