you are standing 12ft from a cylindrical corn syrup tank the distance from you to a point of tangency on the tank 35ft what is the radius of the tank

1. Steve

Draw a diagram.
The line from you to the center is 12+r
The line from the center to the tangency is r, and is perpendicular.
The line from you to the tangency is 35

(r+12)^2 + r^2 = 35^2

just solve that for r.
