OK. Since no one was answering my last question, I have a new one. Its about my math project.

I have to find the slope of several staircases.

I decided to start with my own.

I feel really stupid saying this, but I have no idea how to go about finding the slope of my staircase. I can do it easily on paper, with graphs and stuff, but somehow I just can't figure this out. I feel really dumb asking a question like this on a board like this....but I'm desperate.

So far, i have measured the total run as 124" and total rise as 96". Then, I did the equation to find slope and I got 96/124 which I reduced to 24/31. Is this the slope? It didn't seem right at all to me, considering each step is only 7 inches high. I don't know if I'm completely off or did anything right....please help me! Walk me thru it!!!!
