One state guideline for safewheelchair ramp construction requires 25 ft. of horizontal distance for every 1 foot vertical drop/rise. The A.D.A. is a national organization of disabled people. They set safe ramp slopes between 3% and 5%. I'm to show how the state above is in compliance with A.D.A. (or not).do i take the fraction 1/25 and divide the percents to get two seerate answers to show if it's in compliance at 3 and 5 %? thanks!Answer by Earlsdon(6294)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The problem is convert 1ft/25ft to a percent. Remember that percent means...out of 100. You can make a proportion: Multiply both sides by 100 to solve for x. So, 1/25 = 4% and 3% < 4% < 5% so it is in compliance.
