ok the question i need help with is: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

One side of the triangle is 16ft so the base is 16ft. The other side is the difference between 50ft and 20ft. Let one equal a, the other b, and solve for c.
so can u type how the equation would be for me plz:)
are you sure you just want the answer?

both work and anwer
i just dont get what he is saying like equation wise
ok, i'll try to explain it too - this might help to have to two ways... you know the hypotenuse is 'the long bit' ?
usually this question has a point on the ground between the poles that acts like an anchor....

ya
is that the answer your looking for? or simply the distance between the tops of the poles?
I think the question is just asking for the distance between the top of the 50 ft pole to the top of the 20ft pole. I don't think the anchor situation has anything to do with it.
well u have to read the question
its the tops
what is the minimum number of feet is an optimization question to me...so I am lead to think that there is something missing from the question
its asking what is the feet in the length of a rope tht connects the top
It's a simple geometry problem incorporating pythag.
otherwise its asking for the caternary between them...
but go ahead :)
why dont u reread the question above
I did, but hey, if your sure your right then by all means, go with it :)
stop making it more complex than it is amistre :P
Ok a=16 b=30 c=?
well i dont even get anythihng like at all
16ft is the distance between the two poles so the base of a triangle. 30ft is the difference in height from the top of the 20ft pole to the top of the 50ft pole.
so whats the overall anwer?? is it that i input the numbers and c is the anwer
Yes because c represents a hypotenuse which would be the diagonal line from the top of the 50ft pole to the top of the 20ft pole.
what did u get as an awner
34ft
same here ok ready for the last one
Yep.
If the sides of a rectangular field shown are 10 meters and 30 meters , how many meters are saved in travelling from A to B by cutting across the digonal of the field instead of going around two of the sides? express anwer to the nearest hole number of meters
So the diagonal represents what here? I kind of mentioned it before...
ok so there is a rectangle right and its cuz in half the top of it is 30 and sidke is ten or a while 30 b
wait forget a and b but the rest is right
so b is one cornor of the rectangle( top left) and a is bottom right of rectangle there we goo
help
if you are putting it into shapes, a and b aren't points on the rectangle, they are the length of the side of the rectangle
Ok...so if you cut a rectangle in half diagonally, then you have a triangle. The diagonal of the rectangle is the hypotenuse, c. So a and b are the sides of the rectangle.
does that help?
nope
here is what the rectangle looks like

wow, thats blurry
sorry
just wanted to give picture bout what im saying
oh yeah, that was good, but i couldn't read it sorry :) but i think i can figure out what it says
Ok so go back to the equation \[a^2+b^2=c^2\] a is any side of the triangle, and b is just the other side. C is the hypotenuse, which is the diagonal.

so how would i imput those numbers would i have to cut them in half since it is only oone of the triangles??
Nope. They are looking for that diagonal length, which depends on the other two sides of the triangle. No need to cut anything in half. You see two triangles so just pretend one isn't there. A=10ft B=30ft c=?
what was ur anwer
What was your answer?
i got 32 rounded
Correct. :)
thanks going to bed bye peoples
No problem.
