Juan construyó una rampa que tiene 5 m de largo y 1 m de altura. ?Cuánto mide la distancia (d) que recorre al subir la rampa

Accepted Solution

Answer:[tex]d=\sqrt{26}\ m[/tex]  or  [tex]d=5.1\ m[/tex]Step-by-step explanation:The question in English isJuan built a ramp that is 5 m long and 1 m high. How much is the distance (d) he travels when he climbs the ramp?letx -----> the length of the rampy ----> the height of the rampd ----> the distance Juan travels when he climbs the rampwe know thatApplying the Pythagoras Theorem[tex]d^{2}=x^{2}+y^{2}[/tex]we have[tex]x=5\ m[/tex][tex]y=1\ m[/tex]substitute the given values[tex]d^{2}=5^{2}+1^{2}[/tex][tex]d^{2}=26[/tex][tex]d=\sqrt{26}\ m[/tex] -----> exact value[tex]d=5.1\ m[/tex] ----> approximate value
