There can be many answers. Without giving us the "rise" we can not solve for run. Rise could be 10, while run is 2, and at the end would still give us the same slope of 5...

yep could be 10 million / 2 million

it's a stupid name they came up with to represent the number on the denominator of the slope. Personally I prefer rise over lay

I don't like the terminology at all - I prefer the UK version which is 'vertical part / horizontal part of the slope' . However that's a lot of words...

They are all misleading for this very reason...it is a ratio. In this question I would assume they meant for the fraction to be reduced, and it may even be defined that way in their book. I assume then that we are dealing with \(\dfrac{5}{1}\)

If you guys wanted to be that particular you should be defining linear, because I bet it's not what you think :)
