A POLE IS LEANING AGANIST A TREE SO THAT THE TOP OF THE POLE IS AT A HEIGHT OF 22FT.THE BUTTON OF THE POLE IS ON THE GEOUND 6FT AWAY THE TREE.WHAT IS THE SLOPE OF THE POLE LEANING AGAINST THEE TREE

  • ALGEBA -

    Think of the top of the tree as 22 on the y axis, the bottom of the pole on the ground 6 away from the origin in the positive x direction.
    Slope = change in y / change in x
    Slope = (22 - 0) / (6 - 0) = ....
    I think you can do the rest.
    Hope this helped. Peace.
