figuring slope ratio:

(1/1)

**greengo233**:

I have seen alot on this , and i have no idea how it works so i want to ask the experts.

So how do you figure slope ratio ex. 2:1,6:1 etc?

Thanks

Slope is figured by the ratio of the horizontal length required to get one foot of vertical drop. In other words, If you have one foot of drop over a distance of 6 feet, then the ration is 6 to 1. If the one foot of drop occurs over a distance of 3 feet, then the ratio is 3 to 1. Ratios are usually stated with the horizontal length first, and the vertical measurement second.
