mr. rite wants his roof to be 90degrees at its peak and have a slope of -7/2 on the sunny side of the house. if the height of his roof must be 210, how wide is his house?

So set up a drawing: Next, x represents the width of the house. I would use the pythagorean theorem. $$\ \huge (210)^2 + (x)^2 = (-\frac{7}{2})^2$$. By the way, the Pythagorean Theorem is $$\ \huge a^2 + b^2 = c^2$$. Then, I would solve for $$\ \huge x$$.
