Because many of its uses are suitable for in home use platform ladders can be bought at home improvement stores such as Home Depot or Lowes. They can also be purchased at any industrial outlet that sells or supplies scaffolding.

### A painter is standing at the base of a ladder that is leaning against the side of a house What angle do the ladder and the house form?

It can be any angle that is more than zero degrees and less than 90 degrees. &lt;&gt;&lt;&gt;&lt;&gt; It will be an ACUTE angle, and if the ladder is placed properly (1 ft out for each 4 ft up) the angle between wall and ladder will be ABOUT 18 degrees.

### How long must a ladder be to reach the top of a 20' wall if the ladder and the wall form a 32 degree angle (at the angle)?

Then an angle of 58 degrees will be at the bottom of the ladder. Use trigonometry and the sine ratio: sin = opp/hyp and hyp = opp/sin hyp = 20/sin(58) = 23.58356807 length of ladder = 24 feet to the nearest foot

### A ladder that leans against a building makes an angle of 49 degree with the ground and reaches a point on the building 12m above the ground Find the length of the ladder to the nearest meter?

The ladder forms a right angle with the building: the ground and the building forming the right angle and the ladder forming the hypotenuse. If the length of the ladder is L metres, then sin(49) = 12/L So L = 12/sin(49) = 15.9 = 16 metres.

### What is the point of having scaffolding during construction?

Scaffolding is like a giant ladder that helps builders work safely and reach high places during construction. It provides a stable platform for workers to stand on while they build or repair buildings. Without scaffolding, it would be very tricky and dangerous for builders to work on tall buildings. So, scaffolding helps keep everyone safe and makes it easier to get the job done properly.
