Unit 43 Word Problems Using Algebra and Geometry

 Quick Notes stars problems 2-4 on this page. Students have been told that starred problems are very difficult. Students are encouraged not to worry if they can't do these difficult problems. Why? Because there are very few of them on their test and doing them correctly is not required to pass the test. Instructions: Solve these problems using the procedures outlined on page 112. Those viewing these pages at www.businessbookmall.com should click on Introduction to Multi-step Word problems for a copy of these procedures. 1) One end of a 20 foot ladder just reaches the roof of a house.
