I am sorry that you did not get a response to your post earlier.

You need to use the same units. Convert 3.25 miles to feet, noting that there are 5280 feet in a mile. Then divide that into 1600 to get the slope. Since it is decreasing rather than increasing, you need to remember that the slope is negative.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
