You. I would say only one person, and that would be you on your way to the market. The other man was stated to be leaving! So am I right?

wow, you got me for a second on this one! I was about to sit down and write out all of the numbers and I was like duh! He needs 40ft ladder to reach a 40 ft window! So he would need a 40ft ladder.

no wrong answer... its a simple pythagorus theorem formula...... sqrt[ sqr(40)+sqr(9)]= sqrt[1600+81]= sqrt[1681]= 41 fts...!!
