This is the question I am stuck on:
A ramp is placed so it rises 2 m vertically with the top end 15m from the start of the ramp represented by (0,0). The ramp has two concrete supports, both positioned on level ground.
I figured out that the length of the ramp is 15.13m and the gradient is 0.13 and the angle is 7.59. These are correct but the following part of the question I am stuck on:
The position of the support at the end of the ramp can be represented by the equation y= -4x+62. Use this information to find the distance from the botom of the support to the start of the ramp.
Could someone please help me with this part of the question?
