The polar bear is hungry. It wants to eat the fish, but the fish is too deep in the water. The polar bear knows that the fish is 20 feet out and 10 feet down from where he is and he wonders how far he would leap to catch the fish. He uses this problem to figure it out: X sqared = 22.4 ft. He cannot reach it, so he looks for another fish.
The polar bear found an other fish. This one was 10 feet away and at a 20 degree angle. The bear wondered how far down this fish is before he jumped to get it. He used this problem to figure it out:
The polar bear is tired so he takes a quick nap before trying to catch another fish.
The polar bear decided that if he went closer to the water he would have a better chance of getting fish. He knew that the fish was 9ft down and 13 ft away from him. He caculated that the angle that he need to jump in is 55.3 degrees.
