Joey is flying a kite that is attached to a string 200 yards long. The kite is as high as it can go and is flying directly above Joey's house which is 50 yards in front of Joey. How high above the ground is the kite?
This problem has too many variables to answer.
How high above the ground is Joey's end of the string?
Is the side of the house 50 yards in front of him? Or is the center of the house 50 yards in front of him?
