### The _____________ is the horizontal distance between two points.

Explanation
The term "run" refers to the horizontal distance between two points. In geometry or trigonometry, when calculating distances or angles, the run represents the length of the horizontal side of a right triangle. It is often used in various contexts, such as measuring the distance between two points on a graph or determining the length of a line segment on a coordinate plane. Therefore, "run" is the appropriate term to describe the horizontal distance between two points.

### The _______________ is the vertical distance between two points.

Explanation
The term "rise" refers to the vertical distance between two points. It is commonly used to describe the increase or elevation between two levels or points. In this context, "rise" specifically indicates the vertical measurement and does not include any horizontal distance.

### Find the slope of the line.

Explanation
The slope of a line represents the rate of change between two points on the line. In this case, the given options for the slope are 1/5, 0.2, and 0.2. These options all represent the same value, which is 0.2. Therefore, the correct answer is 0.2.

• 4.

### Find the slope of the line.

Explanation
The slope of a line represents the ratio of the vertical change (rise) to the horizontal change (run) between any two points on the line. In this case, the given answer options are 3/5, 0.6, and 0.6. Since the slope can be expressed as either a fraction or a decimal, all three options could potentially be correct. The fraction 3/5 represents a slope of 3 units rise for every 5 units run. The decimal 0.6 also represents the same slope, as it is the equivalent decimal value of 3/5. Therefore, both 3/5 and 0.6 can be considered correct answers for the slope of the line. The decimal 0.6 is included as an alternative representation of the slope.

### Find the slope of the line.

Explanation
The slope of a line is a measure of how steep the line is. In this case, the given number 8 is the slope of the line. This means that for every increase of 1 unit in the x-direction, the line will increase by 8 units in the y-direction.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### Find the slope of the line.

Explanation
The slope of a line is the ratio of the change in y-coordinates to the change in x-coordinates between any two points on the line. In this case, the line passes through the point (1,1), so the change in y-coordinates is 1 and the change in x-coordinates is also 1. Therefore, the slope of the line is 1/1, which simplifies to 1.

• 7.

### Find the slope of the line.

Explanation
The slope of a line is a measure of how steep the line is. In this case, all three options, .5, 0.5, and 1/2, represent the same value. They all indicate that the line has a slope of 1/2, which means that for every 1 unit increase in the x-coordinate, the y-coordinate increases by 1/2 unit.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### Find the slope of the line.

Explanation
The slope of a line represents the rate at which the line is increasing or decreasing. In this case, the given answer of 6 suggests that the line has a constant slope of 6 units. This means that for every 1 unit increase in the x-coordinate, the y-coordinate will increase by 6 units.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### Find the slope of the line.

Explanation
The given options 1.5, 3/2, and 1 1/2 all represent the same value, which is the slope of the line. The slope of a line is a measure of how steep the line is. In this case, all three options represent the slope as a decimal, a fraction, and a mixed number respectively. Therefore, any of these options can be considered correct as they all represent the same value.
