the info `A ramp for wheelchair access to the gym has a slope of 5% (that is, the ramp rises 5 feet vertically for every 100 feet of horizontal distance)` basically tells us that we'll have this proportion 2/x = 5/100
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
the numerators represent the vertical change in distance the denomiators represent the horizontal change in distance
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
ok
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
so you see how I got 2/x = 5/100? if so, then the next step is to isolate x
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
yep, I got that
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
ok tell me what x is
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
40
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
good
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
so thats the answer and how we do it?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
like I said, solving 2/x = 5/100 for x
iwanttogotostanford
  • iwanttogotostanford
ok, thanks! I have another question! can i tag you in a new question and help me?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
2/x = 5/100 2*100 = x*5 ... cross multiply 200 = 5x 5x = 200 5x/5 = 200/5 ... dividing both sides by 5 x = 40

  • iwanttogotostanford
ok! Can i make a new question and tag you in it?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
sure
