Anne wants to tie a support line from the top of a 50 foot radio tower to an anchor spot 30 feet from the tower’s base. Approximately how long will the line need to be?

  • math - ,

    This makes a right angle triangle -- and can be solved by the Pythagorean Theorem.

    a^2 + b^2 = c^2

    50^2 + 30^2 = c^2

    2500 + 900 = c^2

    3400 = c^2

    58.3 = c
