If you're talking about slope, it is rise over run. But why is it not the other way run over rise?

It is rise over run. (Rise divided by run)

Rise over run

The slope can be remembered as "rise over run". When the slope is an integer, it means that the rise over run is positive.

rise divided by run: a fraction, rise is y and run is x (you run on a horizontal plane) (you rise on a vertical plane)

Rise over run ! Rise _____ run

a run in math is referring to slope, which is rise over run. rise is how far you travel up, and run is how far you travel over.

Rise over run gives you slope, not points

Slope equals rise over run.

Determine which line is steeper by finding out which has a greater rise over run. I trust you know what rise over run is. You can determine which has a greater rise over run by dividing the rise by the run, and then whichever line has the largest decimal is the steepest.

slope = rise/run

It could have been either but it must have been easier to put the y-coordinate on top.

The measure of the steepness of line expressed as rise over run is called slope.

Answer: run.

rise over run

run over rise

Rise over run

rise over run. That would be a 4" rise for every 12" run. In other words, 4" vertically over 12" horizontally

This is plotted with a straight line. The "rise" is how far the line rises vertically. the "run" is how far it traverses horizontally. The division "rise" / "run" is the "slope" of the line.

Rise over run or y over x.

When run = 0. That is to say, when the line is vertical.
