two poles 15 meter and 30 meter high stand upright in a playground if their feet are 36 meter apart find the distance between their tops.

d^2 = 36^2 + (3015)^2 = 36^2 + 15^2
d = 39
the tops form the hypotenuse of a 51213 right triangle (scaled by 3) 
ADD THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE HEIGHT OF THE POLE AND 36
ANSWER=41M
