Ladder

Adam placed the ladder of the house, the upper end reaching to the window at the height of 3.6m, and the lower end standing on level ground and was distant from a wall of 1.5m. What is the length of the ladder?

Result

d =  3.9 m

Solution:

a=3.6 m b=1.5 m  d=a2+b2=3.62+1.52=3910=3.9 ma=3.6 \ \text{m} \ \\ b=1.5 \ \text{m} \ \\ \ \\ d=\sqrt{ a^2+b^2 }=\sqrt{ 3.6^2+1.5^2 }=\dfrac{ 39 }{ 10 }=3.9 \ \text{m}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
