a 26- foot wire reaches from the top of a pole to a stake in the ground. if the distance from the base of the pole to the stake is 10 feet, how high is the pole?

  • geometry - ,

    a^2 + b^2 = c^2

    a^2 + 10^2 = 26^2

    a^2 + 100 = 676
    a^2 = 576
    a = 24

  • geometry - ,

    let the height be h

    solve for h:

    h^2 + 10^2 = 26^2
