The formula d=1.35ãh models the distance d in miles from the horizon where h is the distance in feet from a personfs eyes to the water. If you are standing in a boat and the distance from the water to your eyes is 8 ft, what is your distance from the horizon? Round your answer to the nearest hundredth of a mile.

d = 1.35 √h
when h = 8
d = 1.35√8
= appr 3.82 miles
