Word Problems (Reykjavik day2)

After a late start today, we headed to the large church on the the tallest hill – Hallgrimshirkja.


We rode the elevator to the top of the steeple – and had an awesome view of the city.  This brings us to today’s math question:

If a young boy throws his 3cm x3cm elevator ticket out of the window of a 74 meter high steeple on a calm day, how far a horizontal distance should it travel?


By experimental proof, the answer is approximately 52 Meters.
