Of course. If the line rises 18 units for every 27 horizontal units,then its slope is 2/3 .

Roof pitch is measured in "rise over run". In other words, how many inches does the roof rise vertically in 12" of horizontal run. If a roof rises 4" in 12" of run, you have a 4/12 roof pitch.

Slope is rise/run, or vertical height/horizontal distance. If a hill rises 100 feet high over a horizonatl distance of 1000 feet, it has a slope of 100/1000 = 0.10. Thais one -tenth slope, or one-tenth gradient, which is a 10% grade.

A slope of 1 in 7 (or 14%) is one where it rises 1 unit vertically for every 7 units horizontally

The angle, or pitch, of a roof is calculated by the number of inches it rises vertically for every 12 inches it extends horizontally.

When a plane takes off it travels for a horizontal distance of 1400 ft before reaching its maximum altitude of 50000 ft; the plane's angle of elevation as it rises would be 86 degrees.
