Three staircases are shown below. Which staircase is the steepest? Without doing any calculations, order the staircases from least steep to most steep.
Slope is a measure of steepness. The greater the slope, the greater the steepness. Use the measurements provided in the diagram to justify the order of steepness you determined earlier.
Another staircase climbs 8 feet over a distance of 10 feet. Where does this staircase fall in the order of steepness?
