the nufone communications company must run a telephone line between two poles at opposite ends of a lake. the length and width are 75 feet and 30 feet. what is the distance between the two poles to the nearest foot?

The lake is rectangular?
Where on the opposite ends are the poles?

If they are on opposing corners, then you have a simple Pythagoras application..

give more information.
