The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A newspaper boy throws papers sideways onto the porches of his customers while riding his bicycle along the sidewalk. The sidewalk is 15m in front of the porches. The boy throws the papers at a horizontal speed of 6m/s relative to himself, and rides the bicycle at a speed of 4m/s relative to the sidewalk. Question: If he waits until he is directly opposite a porch, at what horizontal angle with respect to the sidewalk will he have to throw the paper to hit the porch? 2. Relevant equations soh cah toa 3. The attempt at a solution Here is the triangle I'm supposed to get, but what I don't get is why is the hypoteneuse of the triangle 6m/s, when that is the horizontal speed, shouldn't the horizontal line of the triangle be 6?
