This project was designed to teach how to find the hypotenuse of a figure that resembles a right triangle. It involves the story of Adele and Feero, who saves Adele from the building by using the Hypotenuse formula, which is the Pythagorean theorem.
Oh no! How are we going to get him down? I don't know how long I need to extend the ladder.
Adele, a window cleaner, got stuck on the 3rd story of a building. Somebody called the firefighters, and Feero showed up with a ladder to get him down.
I know the height of the building from the bottom to Adele is 5 m. I just need to measure the length from the building to the bottom of the ladder!
Feero, with his quick thinking came up with a solution.
Somebody help me !
I got it! It should be 3 meters.
So he measured the length from the bottom of the ladder to the building, seeing which place would be right.
I should have stayed a taxi driver!
So square root 5^2+3^2=6. So I just need to extend the ladder 6 m.
Now that he got the length from the ladder to the building, he can measure how much he needs to extend the ladder by using the formula square root Leg1^2+Leg2^2=Hypotenuse
Please get me out of here firefighter!
It worked! I got it exactly right.
The ladder happened to reach just perfectly to Adele, who was very happy to see that he was going to get saved.
Hold the ladder, I'm coming down.
No problem, but be more careful next time cleaning windows.
Oh thank you so much! If it wasn't for you, I might have gotten hurt.
Now that he is safely down, Adele thanks Feero, and then they both go on with their life.
