Can someone help!
A handy man knows from experience that his 29-foot ladder rests in its most stable position when the distance of its base from a wall is 1 foot farther than the height it reaches up the wall.
1. Draw a diagram to represent this situation. Be sure to label all unknown values in the problem.
2. Write an equation that you can use to find the unknown lengths in this situation. This equation should come directly from the labels you used in your diagram.
3. How far up a wall does this ladder reach? Show your work.
