A 50-foot pole and a 70-foot pole are 30 feet apart. If you were to run a line between the tops of the two poles, what is the minimum length of cord you would need?
The difference between the 70 foot and 50 foot pole is:
70 - 50 = 20 foot height difference.
So we have a right triangle, with a height of 20, base of 30. We want to know the hypotenuse.

A bag of fertilizer covers 300 square feet of lawn. Find how many bags of fertilizer should be purchased to cover a rectangular lawn 290 feet by 150 feet.
The area of a rectangle is length * width, so we have:
A = 290 * 150
A = 43,500 sq ft.
Now, to find the number of bags needed for a 300 square feet per bag of fertilizer, we have:
Bags Needed = Total Square Feet of Lawn / Square Feet covered per bag
Bags Needed = 43,500 / 300
Bags Needed = [B]145[/B]

A bird was sitting 12 meters from the base of an oak tree and flew 15 meters to reach the top of the tree. How tall is the tree?
So we have a [U]right triangle[/U]. Hypotenuse is 15. Base is 12. We want the length of the leg.
The formula for a right triangle relation of sides is a^2 + b^2 = c^2 where c is the hypotenuse and a, b are the sides
Rearranging this equation to isolate a, we get a^2 = c^2 - b^2
Taking the square root of both sides, we get a = sqrt(c^2 - b^2)
a = sqrt(15^2 - 12^2)
a = sqrt(225 - 144)
a = sqrt(81)
a = [B]9 meters[/B]

A flower bed is to be 3 m longer than it is wide. The flower bed will an area of 108 m2 . What will its dimensions be?
A flower bed has a rectangle shape, so the area is:
A = lw
We are given l = w + 3
Plugging in our numbers given to us, we have:
108 = w(w + 3)
w^2 + 3w = 108
Subtract 108 from each side:
w^2 + 3w - 108 = 0

w = (9, -12)
Since length cannot be negative, w = 9.
And l = 9 + 3 --> l = 12
So we have [B](l, w) = (12, 9)[/B]
Checking our work, we have:
A = (12)9
A = 108 <-- Match!

A framed print measures 80cm by 65cm. The frame is 5cm wide. Find the area of the unframed print.
We subtract 5 cm from the length and the width to account for the frame:
Unframed Length: 80 - 5 = 75
Unframed Width: 65 - 5 = 60
Area of the unframed rectangle is:
A = lw
A = 75(60)

Whoa... stop screaming with those capital letters! But I digress...
The perimeter of a rectangle is:
P = 2l + 2w
We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]P = 196
[*]l = 6w
[/LIST]
Plug these into the perimeter formula:
2(6w) + 2w = 196

[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=12w%2B2w%3D196&pl=Solve']Plugging this equation into our search engine[/URL], we get:
[B]w = 14[/B]
Now we put w = 14 into equation (2) above:
l = 6(14)

So our length (l), width (w) of the rectangle is (l, w) = [B](84, 14)

a rectangle has an area of 238 cm 2 and a perimeter of 62 cm. What are its dimensions?
We know the rectangle has the following formulas:

Given an area of 238 and a perimeter of 62, we have:
[LIST=1]
[*]lw = 238
[*]2(l + w) = 62
[/LIST]
Divide each side of (1) by w:
l = 238/w
Substitute this into (2):
2(238/w + w) = 62
Divide each side by 2:
238/w + w = 31
Multiply each side by w:
238w/w + w^2 = 31w
Simplify:
238 + w^2 = 31w
Subtract 31w from each side:
w^2 - 31w + 238 = 0

A young dad, who was a star football player in college, set up a miniature football field for his five-year-old young daughter, who was already displaying an unusual talent for place-kicking. At each end of the mini-field, he set up goal posts so she could practice kicking extra points and field goals. He was very careful to ensure the goalposts were each straight up and down and that the crossbars were level. On each set, the crossbar was six feet long, and a string from the top of each goalpost to the midpoint between them on the ground measured five feet. How tall were the goalposts? How do you know this to be true?
The center of each crossbar is 3 feet from each goalpost. We get this by taking half of 6, since midpoint means halfway.
Imagine a third post midway between the two goal posts. It has the same height as the two goalposts.

Anne wants to make a platform that is 7 feet wide and 10 feet long. If she uses boards that measure 6 inches wide by 2 feet long, how many boards will she need to complete the job?
Area of platform which is a rectangle:

n and m are congruent and supplementary. prove n and m are right angles
Given:
[LIST]
[*]n and m are congruent
[*]n and m are supplementary
[/LIST]
If n and m are supplementary, that means we have the equation:
m + n = 180
We're also given n and m are congruent, meaning they are equal. So we can substitute n = m into the supplementary equation:
m + m = 180
To solve this equation for m, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=m%2Bm%3D180&pl=Solve']we type it in our search engine[/URL] and we get:
m = 90
This means m = 90, n = 90, which means they are both right angles since by definition, a right angle is 90 degrees.

Perimeter of a rectangle is 372 yards. If the length is 99 yards, what is the width?

Perimeter of a rectangle is 372 yards. If the length is 99 yards, what is the width?
The perimeter P of a rectangle with length l and width w is:
2l + 2w = P
We're given P = 372 and l = 99, so we have:
2(99) + 2w = 372
2w + 198 = 372
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 198 and 372. To do that, we subtract 198 from both sides
2w + 198 - 198 = 372 - 198

We're given:

A flag is a rectangle shape. So we have the following equations
Since P = 2l + 2w, we have 2l + 2w = 60
l = 7w - 2
Substitute Equation 1 into Equation 2:

The perimeter of a rectangle is 400 meters. The length is 15 meters less than 4 times the width. Find the length and the width of the rectangle.
l = 4w - 15
Perimeter = 2l + 2w
Substitute, we get:

The perpendicular height of a right-angled triangle is 70 mm longer than the base. Find the perimete

The perpendicular height of a right-angled triangle is 70 mm longer than the base. Find the perimeter of the triangle if its area is 3000.
[LIST]
[*]h = b + 70
[*]A = 1/2bh = 3000
[/LIST]
Substitute the height equation into the area equation
1/2b(b + 70) = 3000
Multiply each side by 2
b^2 + 70b = 6000
Subtract 6000 from each side:
b^2 + 70b - 6000 = 0
Using our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=b%5E2%2B70b-6000%3D0&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']quadratic calculator[/URL], we get:
b = 50 and b = -120
Since the base cannot be negative, we use b = 50.
If b = 50, then h = 50 + 70 = 120
The perimeter is b + h + hypotenuse
Using the [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/righttriangle.php?angle_a=&a=70&angle_b=&b=50&c=&pl=Calculate+Right+Triangle']right-triangle calculator[/URL], we get hypotenuse = 86.02

The ratio of the measures of the 3 angles of a triangle is 1:2:3. What is the measure of the largest

The ratio of the measures of the 3 angles of a triangle is 1:2:3. What is the measure of the largest angle in degrees?
Let the smallest angle be x.
Then we have 3 angles based on the ratio: x, 2x, 3x
We know the sum of the angles of a triangle equals 180. So we have:
x + 2x + 3x = 180
6x = 180
Divide each side by 6:
6x/6 = 180/6
x = 30
The largest angle is 3(30) = [B]90
