Calculate the average mathematical gradient of a slope that rises 450m over a horizontal distance of 1.8 km.

  • Math -

    I THINK that its 450/1.8. Hopefully someone will check this.

  • Math -

    Maybe 450 / 1800, as one has to change everything
    to metres (or km) ?

    The answer should be 0.25...
