Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2rise/run Rise = spaces up(+ number) or spaces down( number) Run = spaces to the right. So from the first point, count the spaces up or down. If the line goes down, remember this number will be negative. Then count the spaces you need to "run" to the second point. Example: dw:1352996453610:dw
