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.

|dw:1350969976124:dw|

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

but*

- saifoo.khan

As the formula is slope is rise/run.

- anonymous

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

- saifoo.khan

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

- anonymous

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

- saifoo.khan

You're welcome. Hope you understood the solution.

- anonymous

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

- saifoo.khan

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

- anonymous

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

- saifoo.khan

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

- anonymous

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

- saifoo.khan

Follow the same method.

- anonymous

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

- saifoo.khan

OMG! I died after watching that drawing.

- anonymous

sorry i dont understand this.....

- saifoo.khan

|dw:1350970968596:dw|

- anonymous

wait but how did u get that?

- anonymous

would the slope decrease?

- saifoo.khan

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

- anonymous

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

- saifoo.khan

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

- anonymous

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

- saifoo.khan

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

- anonymous

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

- saifoo.khan

It will be directly proportional
.

- anonymous

but how?

- saifoo.khan

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

- anonymous

that makes no sence....

- anonymous

how does that help me.....

- saifoo.khan

|dw:1350971668756:dw|

- saifoo.khan

Does that help?

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

wait but what if the slope is greater than 1?

- 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.

- anonymous

change to what?

- 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.

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

but*

- saifoo.khan

Then too.
Only the value of constant will change.

- anonymous

slope*

- anonymous

okay

- anonymous

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?

- saifoo.khan

Greater the slope, the steeper it is.

- anonymous

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

- saifoo.khan

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

- anonymous

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

- saifoo.khan

A.

- anonymous

ok thank you now i am done with my homework!
