    \[\text{ slope } =\frac{ \text{ rise } }{ \text{ run }}\]

    The rise is the numerator so we have to convert 1/20 so that the numerator matches.

    We do that by multiplying each part of the fraction by 6, since 1 * 6 = 6 and that would be the numerator.

    slope=rise/run 1/20=6/x x/20=6 x=6*20
