The _____________ is the horizontal distance between two points.

Explanation
The term "run" refers to the horizontal distance between two points. This means that it measures the length between two points in a straight line on a horizontal plane, disregarding any vertical movement or elevation changes. The run is an important measurement in various fields such as construction, engineering, and surveying, as it helps determine the distance between two specific locations.

The _______________ is the vertical distance between two points.

Explanation
The term "rise" refers to the vertical distance between two points. It is commonly used in various fields such as mathematics, physics, and engineering to describe the change in height or elevation between two points. The rise can be calculated by subtracting the y-coordinate of one point from the y-coordinate of another point. It is an important measurement when analyzing slopes, gradients, or changes in vertical position.

Find the slope of the line.

Explanation
The given answer, 3/5, .6, 0.6, represents the slope of the line. The slope of a line is a measure of how steep the line is. In this case, the slope is represented as a fraction, 3/5, and also as decimal values, .6 and 0.6. These different representations all convey the same information about the slope of the line.

Rate this question:

• 6.

Find the slope of the line.

Explanation
The slope of a line is the ratio of the change in the y-coordinates (vertical change) to the change in the x-coordinates (horizontal change) between any two points on the line. In this case, since only one number is given, we can assume that the line is horizontal and does not have a change in the y-coordinate. Therefore, the slope is 0.

• 7.

Find the slope of the line.

Explanation
The slope of a line is the measure of how steep the line is. In this case, the slope is given as 1. This means that for every increase of 1 unit in the x-coordinate, there is an increase of 1 unit in the y-coordinate. Therefore, the line has a constant slope of 1, indicating that it is a straight line that rises 1 unit for every 1 unit it moves horizontally.

Rate this question:

• 8.

Find the slope of the line.

Explanation
The given answer (.5, 0.5, 1/2) represents the slope of the line. In mathematics, the slope is a measure of how steep a line is. It is calculated by dividing the change in the y-coordinates by the change in the x-coordinates between two points on the line. In this case, all three values (.5, 0.5, 1/2) are different representations of the same slope, which is equal to 1/2.

Rate this question:

• 9.

Find the slope of the line.

Explanation
The slope of a line is the measure of how steep the line is. In this case, the given answer of 6 suggests that the line has a slope of 6. This means that for every unit increase in the x-coordinate, the y-coordinate increases by 6 units.

Rate this question:

• 10.

Find the slope of the line.

Explanation
The given answer, 1.5, 3/2, 1 1/2, represents the slope of the line. The three expressions are equivalent and represent the same value. The slope of a line is a measure of how steep the line is, and it is calculated by dividing the change in the y-coordinate by the change in the x-coordinate. In this case, the slope is 1.5 or 3/2 or 1 1/2, indicating that for every unit increase in the x-coordinate, the y-coordinate increases by 1.5 or 3/2 or 1 1/2 units.
