Solar panels are used to convert energy from the sun into electricity. To get the best result, the panel
has to be perpendicular to the sun's rays; in other words, angle è has to be a right angle. What should the height, h, be if è is a right angle, a solar panel is 12 ft long, and the sun's angle of elevation is 38°?

A. 9.4 ft
B. 9.5 ft
C. 15.4 ft
D. 7.4 ft

    a^2 + b^2 = c^2.
    (20)^2 + (5x-10)^2 = (2x*sqrt5)^2
    400 + 25x^2 - 100x + 100 = 20x^2
    25x^2 - 100x + 500 = 20x^2
    Divide both sides by 5:
    5x^2 - 20x + 100 = 4x^2
    5x^2 - 4x^2 - 20x + 100 = 0.
    x^2 - 20x +100 = 0
    (x-10)(x-10) = 0.

    x - 10 = 0
    X = 10.
