SolutionNote that the slope of each of the lines is positive, since each line rises as it goes to the right. Since the slopes of both lines are positive and line k rises faster (or is steeper) than line , line k has the greater slope, and the correct answer is \(A\).

Quantity A 
Quantity B 
The slope of line k 
The slope of line l 
Since both lines go UP as we travel from left to right, we know that both slopes are POSITIVE Since line k is STEEPER than line j, we know that the slope of line k is GREATER THAN the slope of line l. Answer: A Cheers, Brent

Instead we have to rely on the fact that both lines have positive slopes, and line k is steeper (which means that has a bigger slope) Cheers, Brent

For the line defined by the equation y = 6x + 1, the slope is 6 For the line defined by the equation y = 2x + 3, the slope is 2 So, the line defined by the equation y = 6x + 1 is steeper. Cheers, Brent

Cheers, Brent Thanks a lot Brent for your guidance. I assume negative sign won't be considered and since 6>2 so slope value with 6 is steeper than +2

Cheers, Brent Thanks a lot Brent for your guidance. I assume negative sign won't be considered and since 6>2 so slope value with 6 is steeper than +2 That's correct. In general, we can create the following rule If line M has slope m and line N has slope n, then: If m > n, then line M is STEEPER than line N If m < n, then line N is STEEPER than line M
