Solution

Note 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.

Cheers,
Brent
