\[a^2+b^2=c^2\]

A and b are sides of a triangle, while c is the hypotenuse.

it says a ladder 58 feet long reachers a point on a building that is 42 feet above the ground. if the ground is horizontal. how many feet from the foot of the building is the foot of the ladder?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok so the ladder makes a triangle with a building. One side is 42ft, the other side is unknown, and the hypotenuse is 58ft. So based on this we plug these numbers into the equation. :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok i will try it
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait what side is 42?
anonymous

brb

The height of the triangle is 42, but for the sake of the equation it doesn't matter whether you say 42 is a or b.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so you would have a²+42²=58² ??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes and then you solve for a. :)

yay, i graduate primary school :)

ok two vertical poles are 16 feet apart. what is the minimum number of feet in length of a rope that connects the top pf the 50 foot peole to the top of the 20 foot pole
anonymous
  • anonymous
anyone know
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes. Draw a picture of the poles. Maybe you can see it better.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
??? help
anonymous
  • anonymous
So we do the triangle thing again. We know one side is 16ft what is the length of the other side? We are solving for the hypotenuse.
anonymous
  • anonymous
for these, it always helps me see it, if i draw a picture - even if its just lines and numbers next to them so with the two poles and distance between the poles, you can see the difference in pole height
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
