A tree broke from a point but did not separate. If the point from where it broke is 7 m above the ground and its top touches the ground at the distance of 24 m from its foot, find out the total hieght of the tree before it broke.

  • maths -

    Use the pythagorean theorem:

    sum of squares of two sides of a right triangle = square of hypotenuse.

    7^2 + 24^2 = hypotenuse^2

    Add hypotenuse value to 7 for total height.

    I hope this helps.
