# Jane's husband is 2m tall. The ceiling in their lounge is 2.5m high and there is a lamp which hangs 41cm from the ceiling. Will her husband bump his head on the lamp if he walks through the lounge?

He will not hit his head.

#### Explanation:

The bottom of the lamp will be $41$ cm below the ceiling.

$2.5 m - 41 c m$

$= 2.5 m - 0.41 m$

$= 2.09 m$ from the floor.

Jan's husband is $2 m$ tall so the top of his head will be $9 c m$
from the bottom of the lamp.

No, he will not hit his head on the lamp.
