A 25-ft ladder rests against a vertical wall. If the bottom of the ladder slides away from the wall at a rate of 0.18 ft/sec, how fast, in ft/sec, is the top of the ladder sliding down the wall, at the instant when the bottom of the ladder is 20 ft from the wall? Answer with 2 decimal places. Type your answer in the space below. If your answer is a number less than 1, place a leading "0" before the decimal point (ex: 0.35).

Setup your Pythagorean Identity here :)\[\Large\rm x^2+y^2=z^2\]The length of the ladder is the only thing that is `not changing`. It's being held constant, so you can plug that value in if you want.\[\Large\rm x^2+y^2=25^2\] Oh oh oh, you'll need the length y near the end of the problem. Might make sense to deal with that now.\[\Large\rm 20^2+y^2=25^2\qquad \text{solve for y}\]Then back to this setup,\[\Large\rm x^2+y^2=25^2\]Differentiate with respect to `time` and then simply plug in all of your stuff and solve for y' ! :)
