    here are two bridges I found. Im not sure as to which one I should use yet.

    The question says describe some of the specific features and characteristics of each arch (ex: span, height, etc)

    First of all how do I describe these things? Second what is included in etc? There are no numbers how will I describe height and span? By the way this is from my Locus and Conics Unit, I dont know why this is about a bridge, plz give me some ideas if you have any!
