Research building codes for ramps such as wheelchair ramps, boat ramps, or loading docks. Choose a building code for a ramp and describe the relationship between the lengths involved using geometry vocabulary such as hypotenuse, adjacent side, and opposite side. Use right triangle concepts from this Unit to find any unknown lengths and angle measures of the ramp. Be sure to identify the type of ramp. Explain if the building code of your ramp makes sense and do the same for the other building codes posted for discussion. Discuss why there are building codes for ramps and how you think they are

    It shouldn't be that hard.

    Do you have access to building codes for your state and town? It wants you to research them for various types of ramps. The geometric language I can tell you: the slant of the ramp going up is the hypotenuse. The ground under the ramp is the adjacent side. The step or drop that necessitated the ramp is the opposite side. You can find the length of a leg if you know the length of the two other legs by applying the Pythagorean Theorem. If you only know one side and one angle, you can find the other two sides
