To calculate the slope, calculate the

rise (vertical) = 14588 - 8200 ft

run (horizontal) = 15842 ft

The slope is rise/run, convert to 100%.

You're correct, but draw them on the number line to make sure you understand the answer.

-∞----+0------+5---------+7.5----------+∞

Numbers on the right are greater than the numbers on the left. So if 7.5 is situated on the right of 5, then it is greater than 5.

Yes, it's correct, I think you got the hang of it.

How about

4-3x>16 ?
