A boy of height 1.7m is standing 30m away from flag staff on the same level ground . He observes that the angle of deviation of the top of flag staff is 30 degree. Calculate the height of flag staff. - Two municipalities

The horizontal distance between municipalities is 39 km. Average sinking is 7 per mille. What is the difference in height between these municipalities? - Distance problem 2

A=(x,2x) B=(2x,1) Distance AB=√2, find value of x - It is 2

It is 90 feet from home plate to first base on a baseball diamond. What is the area of the baseball diamond in square yards? - Car overtaking

A passenger car travels at a speed of 30 m/s, and before it travels freight truck that drives at a constant speed of 10 m/s. Within 30 meters of the truck, the driver of the car finds out that the truck can not overtake. That's why it starts braking with a - An oil

An oil drum is cut in half. One half is used as a water trough. Use the dimensions; length 82cm, width 56cm to estimate the capacity of the water trough in liters. - Distance problem

A=(x, x) B=(1,4) Distance AB=√5, find x; - Reducing scale

I am sizing some landscaping and I measured everything for a 20 to 1 scale. I realized when I was done that it was at 30 to 1. How can I convert what I already have to 30 to 1. (Example, grass area is 22,871.6' at 20 to 1, how do you figure it out to be 30 - Customary length

Convert length 65yd 2 ft to ft - Thomas

Thomas lives 400 meters away from Samko, Robo from Thomas also 400 m and Samko from Robo 500. Anton lives 300 meters away from Robo further as Samko. How far away lives Anton from Rob? - Sandbox

Sandbox has area of 32 sq ft and length of 4 1/2 ft. What is width of sandbox. - Car crash

On the road, with a maximum permitted speed of 60 km/h, there was a car crash. From the length of the vehicle's braking distance, which was 40 m, the police investigated whether the driver did not exceed that speed. What is the conclusion of the police, as - Length subtracting

Express in mm: 5 3/10 cm - 2/5 mm - Tallest and shortest

Jenn is the tallest on the team. He is 1 1/2 times as tall as the shortest girl whom is 4 1/4 feet tall. How tall is Jebb? - Collision

The two bodies, whose initial distance is 240 m, move evenly against each other consistently. The first body has an initial velocity of 4 m/s and an acceleration of 3 m/s^{2}, the second body has an initial speed of 6 m/s and an acceleration of 2 m/s^{2}. Find - Ping time

Calculate theoretical ping time between Orlando and Shenzhen which is 14102 km distant. Ping time measures the round-trip time for small messages sent from the origin to a destination that is echoed back to the source. The name comes from active sonar term - Proportion 2

A car is able to travel 210 km in 3 hours. How far can it travel in 5 hours? Put what kind of proportion is this and show your solution. - The position

The position of a body at any time T is given by the displacement function S=t^{3}-2t^{2}-4t-8. Find its acceleration at each instant time when the velocity is zero. - After 2
