Mr. Cook was painting Arvada West High School, standing on top of a 25]foot ladder. Why? We will never

know. However, he was horrified to find the ladder being pulled away by the same notorious student that

threw a snowball at Mrs. Evans. The base of the ladder was moving from the school at a constant rate of 2

feet per second.

9) At what rate was the angle between the building and the ladder changing when the base of the ladder was

17 feet away from AWest?
