A 10ft ladder is leaning against a wall. Find a function (h) that models the distance between the ground and the top of the ladder as a function (x), the distance between the wall and the base f the ladder.

The ladder begins sliding down the wall, causing the distance from the wall to the base of the ladder to increase. After (t) seconds, the base of the ladder is 0.2t+3ft away from the wall. Find a function that models the height of the ladder (t) seconds after the ladder starts to slide.
