Driving down a mountain, Tom finds that he has descended 1800 ft
in elevation by the time he is 3.25 mi horizontally away from the top of the
mountain. Find the slope of his descent to the nearest hundredth.

slope= descent/horizontal

change 1800 feet to miles, there are 5280 feet in a mile, as I recall.
