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

Ok what is it?

- anonymous

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

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

ok i will try it

- anonymous

wait what side is 42?

- anonymous

brb

- anonymous

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

so you would have a²+42²=58² ??

- anonymous

Yes and then you solve for a. :)

- anonymous

yay, i graduate primary school :)

- anonymous

what the heck ok anyway i hace two more i need help with two also

- anonymous

can you solve for 'a' brookiecookie?

- anonymous

ya hold on im fiquring it out

- anonymous

u guys ready for the next promblem

- anonymous

Sure.

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

anyone know

- anonymous

Yes. Draw a picture of the poles. Maybe you can see it better.

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

??? help

- 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

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

ok
