Suppose a ramp is used to move a heavy object into a van. Suppose also that the van door is 16 inches off the ground.

(a) If the bottom of the ramp rests on the ground 4 feet from the van, what is the slope of the ramp? (Round your answer to two decimal places?

(b) If the ramp cannot have a slope of more than 1.4 inches per foot, how far from the van should the ramp rest? (Round your answer to two decimal places

Step 2

Given

Rise= 16 inch

Run=4 feet

=4*12 i...
