# 1. A steel girder 30 feet long is moved horizontally along passageway 10ft wide into a corridor at right angles to passageway.

How wide must the corridor be in order for the girder to go around the corner? Neglect the horizontal width of the girder. 2. A corridor 4ft wide opens into a room 100 ft long and 32 ft wide at the middle of one side. Find the length thin rod that can be carried horizontally into the room. 3. A corridor 1.2 meters wide opens into a room 17 meters long and 9.8 meters wide at the middle of one side. Find the length of the longest thin rod that can be carried horizontally into the room. 4. A man in a motorboat at A receives a message at noon calling him to B. A bus, making 40kph leaves C bound for B, at 1:00PM. If AC is 30km., what must be the speed of the boat, to enable the man catch the bus? 5. A wall 4 meters high is 3 meters from a building. Find the length of the shortest ladder that will reach the building, when one end rests on the ground outside the wall. 6. A trapezoid gutter is to be made from a strop of metal 22 cm wide by bending up the edges. If the base is 14 cm wide, what width across the top gives the greatest carrying capacity? 7. A ladder 10 meters long leans against a vertical wall. If the top slides down at 2 meters per second, how fat is the angle of elevation of the ladder decreasing when the lower end is 8 meters from the wall. 8. A ship moving 10 miles per hour sails south for 30 minutes, then turn east. If a searchlight at the point of departure follows the ship, how fast is the light rotating 1.5 hours after the start.
