5. A 6-m ladder is used to reach a window 5 m above ground. What is the farthest distance from the base of the wall that the foot of the ladder can rest?
The farthest distance is _____________.
6. A ramp has height 2 m. The sloping length of the ramp needs to be 8 m long. What is the horizontal length of the ramp?
The horizontal length of the ramp is _____________.
5) right triangle pythagorean theorem ladder is hypotenuse 5 m is one leg ...find other leg
6^2 = 5^2 + d^2
d^2 = 6^2 - 5^2 d = ____________ m
6.) Pythag theorem again hypotenuse = 8 one leg = 2 looking for other leg
8^2 = 2^2 + d^2
d^2 = 8^2 - 2^2 d = _______________ m
5) The farthest distance is 11 meters.
