## anonymous one year ago Help: Write at least 3 different expressions that mean "slope".

1. happy_to_help

$m=\frac{ rise }{ run}$

2. happy_to_help

$m=\frac{ \Delta y }{ \Delta x}$

@happy_to_help for the second one you commented..would i just out m=y/x?

4. happy_to_help

Slope = (Change in y)/(Change in x) This is what it means Example:For the first ski slope example, the skier travels four units vertically and ten units horizontally. So, the first slope is m = 4/10.
