Homework Help: Math, Please Help!!!

Posted by Jenny Star on Thursday, November 10, 2011 at 8:23pm.

a hot air balloon is rising vertically 10 ft/sec while the wind is blowing horizontally 5ft/sec. Find the speed of the balloon and the angle x that it makes with the horizontal.

I know that the speed of the balloon is
the square root of (10)^2 + (5)^2, but I was wondering if someone could tell me why the speed is equal to that. Thanks.
