Allie and Ezra are sitting on flagpoles, throwing beanbags at each other. Allie's flagpole is 35 feet tall. Ezra's flagpole is 27 feet tall. The flagpoles stand 15 feet apart. How far, in feet, does Ezra have to throw a beanbag to reach Allie?
We will asume you want a straight line distance from E to A
she needs to throw it UP 8 ft to reach the height of A and horizontally 15 feet
using pythagorean theorem d^2 = 8^2 + 15^2 d = 17 ft
