Suppose a drainage pipe slopes downward 5 inches for each 11 foot horizontal stretch. What is the slope of the pipe? (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

The slope will be 5inches/11ft

In inches, the slope will be 5/132 or about 0.04.

 

Is this correct? If not, I will try again!

I answered -.04 but that wasnt correct. Remember the slope is downward.

So I had the answer all along but I got it wrong because I didnt put a negative. But it was as simple as I thought. -.45       5/11 indecision
