3. You are sliding a big cabinet down a truck ramp for a customer. You must maintain control of the cabinet because it is very heavy. There are 2 ramps in the building.

The equation of ramp 1 is y = 2x + 7 and the equation of ramp 2 is y = 3 x + 7. Which is the safest ramp to slide the cabinet down without losing control and why?

slope for ramp one is 2 and the slope for ramp two is 3. i'd say that ramp one is safer because it's less of a slope.

slope for ramp one is 2 and the slope for ramp two is 3. i'd say that ramp one is safer because it's less of a slope.
