**Question 38.**

Nazima is fly Ashing in a stream. The tip of her Ashing rod is 1.8 m above the surface of the water and the fly at the end of the string rests on the water 3.6 m away and 2.4 m from a point directly under the tip of the rod. Assuming that her string (from the tip of her rod to the fly) is taut, how much string does she have out ? If she pulls the string at the rate of 5 cm per second, what will the horizontal distance of the fly from her after 12 seconds.

**Solution:**

Height of the rod from stream level = 1.8 m

and of string from the point under the tip of rod = 2.4 m

Let the length of string = x

x² = (1.8)² + (2.4)² = 3.24 + 5.76 = 9.00 = (3.0)²

x = 3.0

Length of string = 3 m

Rate of pulling the string = 5 cm per second

Distance covered in 12 seconds = 5 x 12 = 60 cm.

At this stage, length of string = 3.0 – 0.6 = 2.4 m

Height = 1.8 m

Let base = y then

(2.4)² = y² + (1.8)²

=> 5.76 = y² + 3.24

=> y² = 5.76 – 3.24 = 2.52

y = 1.59

and distance from her = 1.59 + 1.2 = 2.79 m
