##### Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

##### What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

##### Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

##### What are tags?

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

## Berekening van die Gradiënt van 'n Lyn

Die gradiënt van 'n lyn beskryf hoe steil die lyn is, hoe groot die helling van die lyn is. In die figuur hieronder is lyn PTPT se helling die grootste. Lyn PSPS is minder steil as PTPT maar is steiler as PRPR, en die lyn PRPR is steiler as PQPQ.

Die gradiënt van die lyn word gedefinieer as die verhouding tussen die vertikale verandering in posisie en die horisontale verandering in posisie. Dit kan verstaan word deur te kyk na die lyn as die skuinssy van die reghoekige driehoek. Die gradiënt is die verhouding van die lengte van die vertikale sy van die driehoek tot die horisontale sy van die driehoek. Dink aan 'n lyn tussen punt AA met koördinate (x1;y1)(x1;y1) en punt BB met koördinate (x2;y2)(x2;y2).

Ons kan gradiënt gebruik om te bepaal of twee lyne parallel is aan mekaar of loodreg is op mekaar. As die lyne parallel is (Figure 3a) sal hulle dieselfde gradiënt hê, byvoorbeeld mAB=mCDmAB=mCD. As hulle loodreg is op mekaar, (Figure 3b) dan sal: -1mAB=mCD-1mAB=mCD

Byvoorbeeld, die gradiënt van die lyn tussen punt PP en QQ, met koördinate (2;1) en (-2;-2) ((Reference)) is:

Gradiënt = y 2 - y 1 x 2 - x 1 = - 2 - 1 - 2 - 2 = - 3 - 4 = 3 4 Gradiënt = y 2 - y 1 x 2 - x 1 = - 2 - 1 - 2 - 2 = - 3 - 4 = 3 4

Die volgende video bied 'n opsomming van die gradiënt van 'n lyn.

## Content actions

PDF | EPUB (?)

### What is an EPUB file?

EPUB is an electronic book format that can be read on a variety of mobile devices.

My Favorites (?)

'My Favorites' is a special kind of lens which you can use to bookmark modules and collections. 'My Favorites' can only be seen by you, and collections saved in 'My Favorites' can remember the last module you were on. You need an account to use 'My Favorites'.
