math

the grade of a road is its slope given as a percent. for example, a road with a 6% grade has a slope 6/100. it rises 6 feet for every 100 feet of horizontal run. describe a 100% grade.
Do you think you could drive up it?could you walk up it? Is it possible for a grade to be greater that 100%?
