# Climb in percentage

The height difference between points A and B is 475 m. Calculate the percentage of route climbing if the horizontal distance places A, B is 7.4 km.

Correct result:

p =  6.42 %

#### Solution:

$y=475 \ \text{m} \ \\ x=7.4 \ km \rightarrow m=7.4 \cdot \ 1000 \ m=7400 \ m \ \\ \ \\ p=100 \cdot \ \dfrac{ y }{ x }=100 \cdot \ \dfrac{ 475 }{ 7400 }=\dfrac{ 475 }{ 74 }=6.42 \%$
