The first picture represents the problem. There is a 30-in. ladder that leads to the top of a slide. The bottom of the ladder is 60 in. from the bottom of the slide. The ladder makes a right angle with the ground.

The second picture shows the math you need to solve the problem.

9. zekaria

ok? soo.......

10. mathstudent55

\(30^2 + 60^2 = s^2\) s = length of slide

11. zekaria

ok I'm going to try it.

12. mathstudent55

Great. Square 30, square 60, add the squares together. then take the square root of the sum.

13. zekaria
