Laura's house has a roof with a width of 9 square root of 2 m and a height of 5 square root of 3 m.
Determine the slope of roof in the simplest form if the slope is equal to the
the height divided by width.
1 Answer | Add Yours
Height of the roof of Laura's house=`5*sqrt3` m
Width of the roof of her house=`9*sqrt2` m
Slope of the roof=height/width
Multiplying the numerator and the denominator by `sqrt2` :
Slope of the roof=`(5sqrt6)/18`
Therefore, the slope of roof in the simplest form is `(5sqrt6)/18` .
