    Answer:

    The slope is -2

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Since the roof is decreasing in height as it goes forward, I know that the slope must be negative. The equation to find the slope is rise/run. The vertical change, or the rise, is -6 feet, so that value goes on top of the fraction. The horizontal value, or the run, is 3 feet so that goes on the bottom of the fraction.

    Now our fraction is \frac{-6}{3}

    If you simplify that fraction, you’ll get -2.
