    Answer:

    \frac{2}{25}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Remember that the formula of slope is “rise over run”, where the “rise” (means change in y, up or down) and the “run” (means change in x, left or right)

    we have

    8\%=\frac{8}{100}

    The gradient is the same that the slope

    so

    The slope of that road stated as the rise over the run is

    \frac{8}{100}

    simplify

    \frac{2}{25}

    where

    2 units is the rise and 25 units is the run
