Homework Help: Geometry/ SAT Math

Posted by anonymous on Wednesday, February 18, 2009 at 9:55pm.

This was an SAT question of the day, but I can't figure out how to come up with the right answer, I think you use Pythagoras Theorum but I'm not sure. Can anyone help with the process here?

A 25-foot ladder is placed against a vertical wall of a building, with the bottom of the ladder standing on concrete 7 feet from the base of the building. If the top of the ladder slips down 4 feet, then the bottom of the ladder will slide out ___ ft.
