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!

Is your question about a ladder or about deer population?

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?

WHAT is the original problem you are solving? We have been trying to tell you that what you posted (1st post) has an attachment that is NOT related to ladders...are you not listening?!
