Homework Help: algebra

The distance you can see to the horizon is given by the formula d= the square root of 1.5 times h, where d is the distance in miles and h is the height in feet above the horizon line. Mt. Whitney is the highest point in the contiguous 48 states. Its elevation is 14,494 feet. The lowest elevation, at -282 feet, is located near Badwater, California. With a clear enough sky and no obstructions, could you see from the top of Mt. Whitney to Badwater if the distance between them is 135 miles?
please explain it to me, I dont get it.
Thank you.
