Am I missing something here.
They way I read this is that the answer is already given 9.5m. or are they after the angle of the ground to guy wire?

The guy wire is 13.4m long. It supports a vertical power pole. The wire is fastened to the ground 9,5m from the base of the 8.7m tall pole . Calculate the measure of guy wire and the ground.
