1. ## Re;ated rates involving a ladder...

"A ladder 10 ft rests against a vertical wall. If the bottom of the ladder slides away from the wall at a rate of 1 ft/s, how fast is the top of the ladder sliding down the wall when the bottom of the ladder is left from the wall?"

Honestly, I don't think this problem is even written correctly..
