- A construction worker made a building 12 ft tall and was 6 ft away he wanted to know how long the hypotenuse was so he could get a long enough ladder to get to the top of the building.
- 12ft
- 6ft
- x ft
- using tangent equation (tan-1(x/y)) he does Tan-1(6/12) and he got 26.6 so he makes sure the ladder is 27 ft long
- 12ft
- 6ft
- x ft
- the construction worker goes to his car and goes to his other construction site to fix things over there
- The construction worker is on the roof of a building attached to a taller building and he needs to know how long of a ladder is needed to get to the other building roof.
- 10ft
- 5ft
- Using tangent equation he does Tan-1(5/10) and he gets 26.6. so know he knows he needs a ladder about 27 ft long
- 10ft
- 5ft
- The End
