Which is steeper, 1/3 or 1/5
Assuming you are referring to the slope of lines, 1/3 would be steeper and you can also verify this by going to https://www.desmos.com/calculator/ica0tezl0j
where you can see that the 1/3 line is steeper.
Line with slope 1/3, or slope 1/5?
For slope of 1/3, you go right 3 every 1 you go up: 1x/3 = y, x = 3y
Similarly, 1/5 is 5 for every 1.
Now, you see, the greater the slope, the steeper it is.
1/3 > 1/5
Thus, 1/3 is steeper.
