```Thank you very much.

Why I ask so because Maarten suggests rescale the variable x before running -glm- if the approximation of slope is exceeding unit. What I asked is can we simply do it another way around: i.e., multiply the slope by a smaller change of x such as 1/100 unit of x rather than 1 unit of x, and then we can explain like by 1/100 unit change of x will increase a certain level of y, which will not exceed 1.

I don’t know if I make myself clear this time:)?

Best,

I don't think guessing is needed here, as this is basic
trigonometry, but yes,
vertical change = horizontal change X slope.
