Chris`s Pythagoras Growing Post

Part 1.

The parts with checkmarks are the Pythagorean Triples



You're locked out of your house and the only open window is on the second floor, 25ft above the ground. You need to borrow a ladder from one of your neighbours. There's a bush along side the edge of the house, so you'll have to place the ladder 10ft from the house. What length of ladder do you need to reach the window?

1. Window is 25 ft above the ground.
2. Bush is near the edge of the house and you will have to place the ladder 10 ft from the house.
3. Must lean the ladder on an angle to get it to the house.


a new store called game mart just opened near your house. it is 3km away from your house to ebgames and then another 4km from ebgames to game mart. When you are going home from game mart you found a road leading from it to your house. how far is it from game mart to your house?
