What is the slope? Rise over run. So if it drops, what does that mean? And over a HORIZONTAL distance, what does that mean?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

This is what I got.. Slope= Rise/run. Rise would be the opposite of the drop, so the slope will be negative. So the slope is -0.04.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

That's true. But keep it in fraction form (just for simplicity sake) But yes, you are right! Good job

thanks
