a 70 ft ladder is mounted 10 ft above the ground on a fire truck. the bottom of the ladder is 40 ft from the wall of a building. the top of the ladder is touching the building. how high off the ground is the top of the ladder?
im not sure on this

Does you answer make any logical sense to you ????
distance^2 = 50^2 + 50^2 = 5000
distance = √5000
= appr. 70.7 yds
2. Make a sketch and use Pythagoras 
for number 1 should it be she walked 100 yd
