on a ship, the distance d that you can see to the horizon is given by d=1.5 square root h, where h is the height of your eye measured in feet above sea level and d is measured in miles. How high is the eye level of a navigator who can see 16 miles to the horizon? Round your answer to the nearest foot.

solve
16 = 1.5√h
10.66666.. = annual salary of $ 45,000 plus a 5.5 % commission on his salesh
h = 113.777..
should be 114 ft above sea level
