You are driving on a road that has a 6% uphill grade. This means that the slope of the road is (6/100). Approximate the amount of vertical change in your position when you drive 200 feet.

We are told that the slope of the road is (6/100).
I know that slope = rise/run.

Stuck here....

@nycdad,
If the run is X, the rise is .06X, right? Draw a right triangle with those values and you should see how to proceed.
