A boy is flying a kite. The height of the kite is 1 1/2 times greater than the horizontal distance (x). The length of string that is out is 520 ft. Determine the height of the kite.

  • Algebra 2 - ,

    height^2+horizontal^2=length^2
    (1.5 horizontal)^2+horizonal^2=520^2
    horizontal^2*(2.25+1)=520^2
    horizontal= 520/sqrt3.25

    height= 1.5* horizontal= 1.5*520/sqrt3.25
