here's what the drawing would look like |dw:1443319000251:dw|
i just need to know the process, i already have the answer
oh ok thanks thats helpful
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
the numerators represent the vertical change in distance the denomiators represent the horizontal change in distance
ok
so you see how I got 2/x = 5/100? if so, then the next step is to isolate x
yep, I got that
ok tell me what x is
40
good
so thats the answer and how we do it?
like I said, solving 2/x = 5/100 for x
ok, thanks! I have another question! can i tag you in a new question and help me?
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
ok! Can i make a new question and tag you in it?
sure
