**drwls**, Sunday, January 11, 2009 at 1:31amA. If D = 1.2 sqrtH, then

D^2 = 1.44 H

Solve that equation for H by dividing both sides by 1.44.

B. Plug in 14255 for H. Take the square root and multiply by 1.2. You should be able to perform those calculations. Compare the horizon distance you get to 89 miles.
