A ladder 25 feet long is leaning against the wall of a building. Initially, the foot of the ladder is 7 feet from the wall. The foot ofthe ladder begins to slide at a rate of 2 ft/sec, causing the top of the ladder to slide down the wall. The location of the foot ofthe ladder at time tseconds is given by the parametric equations (7+2t,0)(a) The location of the top of the ladder will be given by parametric equations (0,y(t)).

6.4/4 points | Previous AnswersThe cup on the 9thhole of a golf course is located dead center in the middle of a circular green which is 40 feet in radius. Yourball is located as in the picture below. The ball follows a straight line path and exits the green at the right-most edge. Assumethe ball travels 9 ft/sec. Introduce coordinates so that the cup is the origin of an xy-coordinate system. Provide numericalanswers below with two decimal places of accuracy.
