8-22.

A semi-circular tunnel is feet high at its highest point. A road feet wide is centered under the tunnel. Bruce needs to move a house on a trailer through the tunnel. The load is feet wide and feet high. Will he make it? Use a diagram to help justify your reasoning completely.

If he drives down the center of the road, the height of the tunnel at the edge of the house is only approximately feet. The house will not fit.
