Chapter 2 - Section 2.2 - The Slope of a Line - 2.2 Exercises: 91


Maximum rise: $19.5$ feet

Work Step by Step

We know that the definition of slope is: $slope=\frac{rise}{run}$ In this case, we have the maximum slope of 13% (slope=0.13) and a run of 150 ft. We calculate the maximum rise: $slope=\frac{rise}{150}=0.13$ $rise=0.13*150$ $rise=19.5$ feet
