mindblown Group Title

I REALLY HONESTLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS! PLEASE HELP ME !!!! The run of the ramp increases, and the rise stays the same. It says to describe how the slope of the ramp changes give the following conditions. Also to, give 3 examples that support the answer.

    Slope = rise/run 1 = rise/run Hence: run = rise.

    In this case, when the slope is 1. we got run = rise. So if run is 2, rise will be 2 as well.. ----- If the slope is greater than the proportionality will change.

    Something else. If the value will be 2. Then: 2run = rise. They both will be directly proportional too, but the value of constant will change.
