The building and the ground form a right triangle.We can use the pythaorean theorum to solve.The ladder forms the hypoteneuse.
5 2 + h 2 = 10 2 25 + h 2 = 100 h 2 = 75 h = 75 h = 5 3 8.66 m

Greatest distance one point can have from a vertice of a square given following conditions
A point P lies in the same plane as a given square of side 1.Let the vertices of the square,taken counterclockwise,be A,B,C, and D.Also,let the distances from P to A,B, and C, respectively, be u,v and w.
What is the greatest distance that P can be from D if u 2 + v 2 = w 2 ?
Some thoughts I had:
1) Given a pair of vertices I could construct an ellipse with P as a point on the ellipse.
2) From the equality u 2 + v 2 = w 2 . I think that I have to consider the case where the angle between u and v is 90 . In this case I would have w = 1 and P D < 2.
That being said,I still fail to come at a concrete solution of the problem,it might be that none of my thoughts are right...
