If you place a 40 foot ladder against the top of a 24 foot building how many feet will the bottom of the ladder be from the bottom of the building?

Hello Guest!

 

\(s^2+ h^2=l^2\\ s=\sqrt{l^2-h^2}=\sqrt{(40ft)^2-(24ft)^2}=\color{blue}32ft\)

32 feet will the bottom of the ladder be from the bottom of the building.
