Problem of the Week: Reach for the Skies

Jul 19, 2020

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you figure it out? Let's look at the solution!

 

Since there are 12 inches in a foot, Westley is 6 × 12 = 72 inches tall.

He can reach objects 24 inches over his head, so he can reach up to 72 + 24 = 96 inches off the ground.

The pitcher is only 90 inches off the ground, so Westley can easily reach it.

 

Look forward to next week's problem!
