What is the slope of the hypotenuses of the triangles in simplest form? First-quadrant graph showing a ray through the origin and the points (5, 2), (10, 4), and (20, 8). Two triangles each have hypotenuses with endpoints along the line, a vertical leg, and a horizontal leg. The first triangle has a hypotenuse with endpoints at (5, 2) and (10, 4). The second triangle has a hypotenuse with endpoints at (10, 4) and (20, 8). https://static.k12.com/calms_media/media/1503500_1504000/1503533/1/a240b0c23767b51db95e417cc38a4a5bfff986a5/MS_IMC-140523-130902.jpg

    It shows you that the Slope of that Line, is Also the Slope of a hypotenuse of a right triangle on that line, You can measure the components of the slope, they are the legs of the triangle in the right triangles.
