I just bought a house and I am painting a picture to hang up my living room.My guest seem to think its boring.
I just finished painting this picture of a skyline. I propped it against the wall to dry. The painting seems to be slipping. What should I do?
The length that the end of the picture is away from the wall is 4 feet. The measurement of the next leg is 6 feet. To calculate the hypotenuse you must do a2=b2=c2
a and b represent the legs and c represents the hypotunese. So 6*6=36 and 4*4=16. 36+16=52. Then you have to find the square root of that number which is 7.2.
To prevent the picture from slipping he needs to get the angle just right. The picture is positioned in the shape of a right triangle. There are 3 parts to a right triangle. Two legs and a hypotenuse. To prop the picture just right we need to figure out the meserment of the hypotunese.
To prop the picture up just right the hypotenuse needs to be 7.2 feet.
