# If you could answer both questions, that would be

Accepted Solution

A:

Question 4

Answer is 8 feet

10 ft ladder = hypotenuse

6 ft away = one side

That makes a right angled triangle

so

by using Pythagoras theorem,

AB² + BC² = AC²

6² + BC² = 10²

36 + BC² = 100

100 - 36 = BC²

64 = BC²

8 = BC

Similarly, in Q 5

Answer is 12 feet

Answer is 8 feet

10 ft ladder = hypotenuse

6 ft away = one side

That makes a right angled triangle

so

by using Pythagoras theorem,

AB² + BC² = AC²

6² + BC² = 10²

36 + BC² = 100

100 - 36 = BC²

64 = BC²

8 = BC

Similarly, in Q 5

Answer is 12 feet
