One end of a ladder is 10 feet from the base of the wall, and the other end......

Not sure How I would do this is the quadratic formula the only way?

And would I see it as 10c^2+10h +100?

Thanks!

Lately this forum is a grand theater of the absurd. For me that's a good thing!

Post the actual problem anyway, with your solution.
Doing this will help another student.
You are also interested in helping out,
not only getting help, RIGHT?

oh I get that but I figured the title of the thread is about a ladder so that's the only reason I figured I should start with that one.
