A large tent is being set up for a fair. Two poles, QU and RT, are

placed perpendicular to the ground and 12 m apart. Pole QU is 4

m in length and pole RT is 7.5 m in length. A tarp is placed over

the poles and secured to the ground at P, 3 m from the base of

pole QU, and S, 4 m from the base of pole RT. Determine P Q + QR

+ RS, the length of the tarp.

The problem is asking us to find the lengths of RS,QR, and QP. We know

that TS has a length of 4, UT has a length of 12, RT has a length of 7.5, PU has a

length of 3, and QU has a length of 4.

Process:

Work

Explanation

2 2 2

a + b=c

Pythagorean Theorem to find the

Hypotenuse of the triangle QUP.

2 2 2

4+3=c

2

16 + 9 = c

2

16+9=c

2

25=c

squared

3. Find Square root of 25

And you find out that the length for QP

is 5

Now we need to find the other

hypotenuse of the triangle RTS, using

pythagorean theorem.

2

2 2

7.5 + 4= c

2

56.3 + 16 = c

2

72.3=c

8.5 = c

your answer for the length of SR

Once you have those numbers you can,

now you find what the length of QR is

1.First you draw a line perpendicular to

RT from point Q to Point.

2

2

2

12 + 3.5 = c

would be 12 because its parallel to the

line UT and then you know the other

leg would be 3.5

2

144+12.3=c

can use pythagreum therum to find the

length of QR

QR:12.5

SR: 8.5

QP:5

Full length of tarp: 26

Justification:

I know my answers are correct because all you really needed to do was

pythagoreum theorem and I feel really comfortable with problems that have to do

with pythagorean theorem. I got really stuck up on finding the length of QR, you

had to think outside of the box. Once I looked at it more than once and got another

pair of eyes to look at it and got it.
