The roof of the house has the shape of a regular quadrangular pyramid with a base edge 17 m. How many m^{2}is needed to cover roof if roof pitch is 57° and we calculate 11% of waste, connections and overlapping of area roof? - Slope of the pool

Calculate slope (rise:run) of the bottom of swimming pool long 30 m. Water depth at beginning of pool is 1.13 m (for children) and depth at end is 1.84 m (for swimmers). Slope express as percentage and as angle in degrees. - Shooter

The shooter fired to a target from distance 11 m The individual concentric circle of targets have a radius increments 1 cm (25 points) by 1 point. Shot was shifted by 8'(angle degree minutes). How many points should win his shot? - OPT

What is the perimeter of a right triangle with the legs 14 cm and 21 cm long? - Triangle radians

The size of two internal angles of a triangle ABC are α=6/18π and β=7/18π. Calculate the size of the third angle. - Train

The train is running at speeds of 96 km/h. From the beginning of braking to full stop train run for 3.3 minutes. If the train slows the braking equally, calculate the distance of the place from the station where you need to start to brake. - Horizon

The top of a lighthouse is 19 m above the sea. How far away is an object which is just “on the horizon”? [Assume the earth is a sphere of radius 6378.1 km.] - Elevation

What must be the elevation of an observer in order that he may be able to see an object on the earth 536 km away? Assume the earth to be a smooth sphere with radius 6378.1 km. - 7 triangle

The triangle area is 26.7 cm^{2}. Determine the side length l if appropriate height h_{l}= 45.3 cm. - Euklid4

Legs of a right triangle have dimensions 244 m and 246 m. Calculate the length of the hypotenuse and the height of this right triangle. - Circumferential angle

Vertices of the triangle ΔABC lies on circle and divided it into arcs in the ratio 2:2:9. Determine the size of the angles of the triangle ΔABC. - Map - climb

On the map of High Tatras in scale 1:11000 are cable car stations in the Tatranska Lomnica and in the Skalnate Pleso with distance 354.6 mm. Altitude of this stations are 949 m and 1760 m. What is average angle of climb of this cable car track? - Rectangle
