I haven't done this yet (Yeah, I know I should have at my age but the last time I did it in class with proper practice was at least 3 years ago so, thankfully, this will be like review.) so I wanted to check my answer before turning it in...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If we were to estimate the horizontal distance for this hill as 306 ft. could you find the slope of the line? To answer this question, you need to remember that the slope of a line is defined as the "rise over the run."

Okay, the rise would be the vertical measurement while the run would be the horizontal right? If so, the rise is 318 feet while the run would be 306 feet.

m = 318/306

m = 1.0392 feet?
