of line n is 0.1 greater than the slope of line p. What is
the slope of line n ?
F. 0.012
G. 0.02
H. 0.22
J. 1.2

[latex]the \ general \ equation \ of \ straight \ line \ is: \ \ y=mx+c \\ " m "\ is \ the \ slope \ of \ line \\ \\ m=0.12 \\ \\ the \ slope \ of \ line \ " n " \ is \ 0.1 \ greater \ than \ line \ p \\ \\ therefore, \ slope \ of \ line \: \\ \\ n=0.12+0.1=0.22 \\ \\Answer : \ H. \ \ \ 0.22 [/latex]
