1) The maintenance crew is doing some work on the arch. The work will be done on the right side of the arch. In order to bring the equipment up the maintenance crew has constructed a temporary ramp from the ground on left side of the arch to the level where the work will be done on the right side. The ramp has a constant rate of rise of 1:5, which means 1 ft. up for every 5 ft. forward.
On the figure below, make a rough sketch of what you think the arch with the ramp would look like.
