Kim just purchased a skateboarding ramp. The ramp is 34 inches long and the lenght of the base of the ramp is 30 inches as shown below.  What is the height of the ramp?  (use a calculator to square and subtract)

We just  have a right triangle

 

The  hypotenuse = 34

One leg =  30

Height  = the other leg   =    sqrt ( 34^2  - 30^2)  =  sqrt  ( 256)   =    16  in
