The person is asking you if you know what a slope is.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Lol, I have seen the attachment, and I know the answer, but I want you to understand it
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thanks RyanL lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
I do not understand this question... and i posted it here because I wanted an explanation. can you please help me.. thank you!
anonymous
  • anonymous
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.

  • anonymous
ohhh but i still dont get it
anonymous
  • anonymous
What don't you get? Do you know how to count?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do you even know how to divide?
anonymous

|dw:1345071480215:dw|so you know what that is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
See we can't help you if you are not specific about what your confused about

i am not a baby miss lefay
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes i understand that part
anonymous
  • anonymous
but its so confusing how do you go up then go to the left!
anonymous
  • anonymous
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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'll let RyanL handle this one... He's taking you in the right direction xoxo
anonymous
  • anonymous
From (0,3) to (0,0) how many times did we move?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ryan why are you so mean
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think you moved 3 spaces
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes you are correct but since you moved 3 spaces down it's a negative -3 so rise= -3 Write that down.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Now from (0,0) to (9,0) how many spaces do you move?
anonymous
  • anonymous
9 spaces
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes and since we are going to the right this time it will be positive so run=9
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay and do yuou divide after?
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\frac{rise}{run}\] Now plug those values into the fraction
anonymous
  • anonymous
and what do you get?
anonymous
  • anonymous
-3/9
anonymous
  • anonymous
is that it -1/3?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes but you can also simplify that
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\frac{-3}{9}=\frac{-3}{3*3}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
A three from the top cancels one from the bottom
anonymous
  • anonymous
i know
anonymous
  • anonymous
what do you get then?
anonymous
  • anonymous
how do you simplify -1/3! Ryan
anonymous
  • anonymous
Now you can't I told you have to simplify -3/9
anonymous
  • anonymous
I thought you didnt know hot to do that that's why
anonymous
  • anonymous
ugh im not that stupid!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sorry I don't know what level of math you are in so sorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
no you were being a jerk
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm not being a jerk. I helped you out and this is how you respond?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no no im thankful but you were being really mean
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sorry I didn't see that you wrote -1/3 until after I went up to see it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I only saw that you wrote -3/9 my bad
anonymous
  • anonymous
Are u in college
anonymous
  • anonymous
yup yup!
anonymous
  • anonymous
see thats why im in high school so there is a differece
anonymous
  • anonymous
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!
