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

asked by Johnathan
  1. 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.
