A spot light is mounded on the eaves of a house 24 feet above the ground. A flower bed runs between the house and the sidewalks, so the closest the ladder can be placed to the house is 18ft. How long of a ladder is needed so that the electrician can reach the place where the light is mounted?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

24^2 + 18^2 = L^2 

=900

sqrt(900) = L^2 

so L = 30 feet.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
