Level bubble Metric tape (cm) measure

1 METER = 100 CM


-------------------> Read RISE of slope here.

100 cm = run > 45 cm = rise ∴ M = 45 /100 M = .45

<--Rise ( vertical distance) Slope = M = --------------------------------------Run ( horizontal distance )

You can also find the slope by measuring the height of the riser and the length of the tread. Slope = M = Height of the riser = Rise = __________cm length of the tread = Run = __________cm Simplify the fraction = = ©2003 Http//WoodinMath.
