Eiffel Tower

HistoryThe Eiffel Tower is an iron lattice tower that is located in Paris. It was named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower in 1889. It's the tallest structure in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world; 7.1 million people ascended it in 2011. The tower is 324 metres tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building. The tower has three levels. It has two restaurants and it is used to broadcast radio and television stations. It was created to conmemorate the French revolution. Used to be the tallest building in the world until the Cryzlet building was constructed.

The Eiffel Tower project relates to algebra because it was constructed based on lines and slopes. It has positive and negative slopes + horizontal lines. Also without the good calculations of math the Eiffel Tower could not have been constructed correctly and symmetrical or a catastrophe could happen like it falling. To construct the Eiffel Tower it took 50 engineers to make 5300 blueprints, a 121 workers and 9441 tons of steel.
