The ladders shown below are standing against a wall at the same angle.How high up the wall does the longer ladder go?(All meausurements are in feet.)
The long side of the big ladder ie 30 and the other side is X. Smaller ladder is 24 and 10.
Is the answer B?
24/10 = 30/x
24 x = 300
x = 12.5
I am assuming that x and 10 are along the wall and not the ground.
Damon please help with question above. Thanks
