squeaky Clean takes their 41-foot ladder to a new building that is 25 feet tall. What is the furthest away they can put the base of their ladder from the building and still reach the top? Round your answer to the nearest foot.

The ladder and the building and the ground form a right triangle will ladder being the hypotenuse....

 

pythagorean theorem      hyp2 = 252 + d2

                                                       41^2 - 25^2 = d^2             d =~~ 32 ft
