Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There 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...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's a stupid name they came up with to represent the number on the denominator of the slope. Personally I prefer rise over lay

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They 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 \(\dfrac{5}{1}\)
