A 100ft diagonal brace on a bridge connects a support of the center of the bridge to a side support on the bridge. The horizontal distance that it spans is 20 ft longer than the height that it reaches on the side of the bridge. Find the horizontal and vertical distances spanned by this brace.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, there is no equation other than \[a ^{2}+b ^{2}= c^2\] to know. Other than that you have to know the relationships of triangles. Unless you are to solve this some other way that I don't remember this is a bit much for intermediate algebra.
