1. ## another one :P

The slope of mary's line is 7/8. The slope of Sue's line is also positive, is less then 1 and is steeper then marys line.If the slope of sue's line can be written a common fraction with a one-digit numerator and a one digit denominator, what is the slope of sue's line? exspress ur answer as a common fraction.

2. $\displaystyle \frac{7}{8} < m < 1$

$\displaystyle \frac{7}{8} < m < \frac{8}{8}$

$\displaystyle \frac{14}{16} < m < \frac{16}{16}$

can you see an "m" that will work?

well 15/16 works for the last one but thad be.....7.5/8?

4. ok ... didn't see the "one-digit" restriction the first time

$\displaystyle \frac{7}{8} < \frac{8}{9} < 1$
