If John stands near a 30 foot tall tree and leans a 50 foot tall ladder against the tree that reaches to the top of tree, then how far is John standing away from the tree? (Round to the nearest hundredth)

think 3-4-5 right triangle. or, do the math: √(50^2 - 30^2)

yea its right angle triangle with 30 foot being adjacent side and 50 foot hypotenuse you have to find base using formula sq.(50^2-30^2)

40
