## mindblown 3 years ago 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.

1. saifoo.khan

So where are you stuck?

2. mindblown

at the beggining....

3. mindblown

i dont know where to start...

4. mindblown

hello????

5. saifoo.khan

|dw:1350969976124:dw|

6. mindblown

ok bur then i need three examples that supprt the answer.

7. mindblown

but*

8. saifoo.khan

As the formula is slope is rise/run. |dw:1350970185318:dw|

9. mindblown

hello??? i still need help here!!! :(

10. saifoo.khan

Sorry, but it takes some time to draw all this.

11. mindblown

OHH THANK YOU SOO MUCH1@!!!!! ITS OK IF IT TOOK SOMETIMES THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)))))))) :DDDDDDDDDD

12. saifoo.khan

You're welcome. Hope you understood the solution.

13. mindblown

I DID THNAK YOU1!!!!!!!! ONE AGAIN THANK YOU!!!!

14. saifoo.khan

Cool. And i guess you're new here so welcome to Openstudy!

15. mindblown

THANKS AND YES I AM! ok wait i have a question thats close to this one

16. saifoo.khan

Feel free to post it. Or do it, i'll check your working.

17. mindblown

ok wait so this time its the rise increasing and the run staying the same...

18. saifoo.khan

19. mindblown

|dw:1350956471065:dw|so do you think it will be like this.....

20. saifoo.khan

OMG! I died after watching that drawing.

21. mindblown

sorry i dont understand this.....

22. saifoo.khan

|dw:1350970968596:dw|

23. mindblown

wait but how did u get that?

24. mindblown

would the slope decrease?

25. saifoo.khan

RISE/RUN As you can see that the RUN remains the same, and RISE increase. Yes, it will decrease.

26. mindblown

OHHHHHHH OKAYYYY SORRY IM JUST SO CONFUSED WITH ALL OF THIS SO THATS Y IM LIFE " WHAAAAAT?"

27. saifoo.khan

Calm down! Drink a glass of water. Take a deep breath. Then finally, start doing the problem.

28. mindblown

|dw:1350956876594:dw|ok got it...... but for the next problems i have are like this:

29. saifoo.khan

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

30. mindblown

ok ..... but what would be the relationship between the rise and the run of the ramp of 1?

31. saifoo.khan

It will be directly proportional .

32. mindblown

but how?

33. saifoo.khan

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

34. mindblown

that makes no sence....

35. saifoo.khan
36. mindblown

how does that help me.....

37. saifoo.khan

|dw:1350971668756:dw|

38. saifoo.khan

Does that help?

39. mindblown

ummm okay...... it kind of helps.... somewhat.... but i get it...

40. mindblown

wait but what if the slope is greater than 1?

41. saifoo.khan

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.

42. mindblown

change to what?

43. saifoo.khan

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.

44. mindblown

ok... got it.... buw what if the slop is less than 1

45. mindblown

but*

46. saifoo.khan

Then too. Only the value of constant will change.

47. mindblown

slope*

48. mindblown

okay

49. mindblown

ok but what about if its something like this.... ramp A has a rise of 6 feet and a run of 2 feet. Ramp B has a rise of 10 feet and a run of 4 feet. Which ramp is steeper? How do you know?

50. saifoo.khan

Greater the slope, the steeper it is.

51. mindblown

ok but by knowing that then which ramp do you think it is?

52. saifoo.khan

6/2 = 3 10/4 = 2.5 Greater the slope, the steeper it is.

53. mindblown

well yah i get that but like is it ramp A or ramp B?

54. saifoo.khan

A.

55. mindblown

ok thank you now i am done with my homework!
