What I learned week 14 in math 10 is about a slope.

The **slope** of a line segment defines and describes a measure of *the steepness of the line segment*. The most important part to get a value of the** slope** is **a rise** and **a run**. A **rise** defines the change in vertical height between the endpoint, and a** run** is a change in horizontal length between the endpoints. It is difficult to memorize with those meaning because my English skills are weaker, so I decide understanding meanings instead of memorizing. Easily, a **rise** is a connection with y value and a **run** is a connection with x value. The rise and run are used to make a ratio to get a value of the slope. The ratio is the **rise** over the **run** (**rise**/**run**). The rise is POSITIVE if we count UP, NEGATIVE if we count DOWN and the run is POSITIVE if we count Right, and NEGATIVE if we count LEFT.

For example,

- a = it counts UP and RIGHT, so its slope is POSITIVE. The rise is 6 and the run is 2, so the fraction is six over two and it can be divided by 2.
- So, the slope is 3.
- b = it counts UP and LEFT, so its slope is NEGATIVE. The rise is – 9 and the run is even 9, so the fraction is nine over nine and it can be divided by 9.
- So, the slope is – 1.
- c = it counts DOWN and RIGHT, so its slope is NEGATIVE. The rise is – 2 and the run is 6, so the fraction is negative two over six and it can be divided 2.
- So, the slope is – 1/3.
- d = it counts DOWN and LEFT, so its slope is POSITIVE. The rise is – 3 and the run is – 5, so the fraction is negative three over negative five it can be divided by – 1.
- So, the slope is 3/5
- e = it counts DOWN and RIGHT, so its slope is NEGATIVE. The rise is – 1 and the run is 8, so the fraction is one over eight and there is no GCF (Greatest Common Factor) which can divide them.
- So, the slope is – 1/8
