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.

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

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

    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 .

    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
    • 2 years ago
    Best Response

    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.

    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?

    Greater the slope, the steeper it is.

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