The equation D=1.2times square root h gives the distance, D, in miles a person can see to the horizon from a height, h, in feet.

a. sovle for h.

b. Long's Peak is 14,255 feet in elevation. How far can you see to the horizon for Long's Peak? Can you see Cheyenne, Wyoming (about 89 miles away)? Explain .

I think for part a. that h=D^2 divided by 1.44 is this correct? How do I set up the next part? I'm confused on setting it up.
