# Broken tree

The tree is broken at 4 meters above the ground and the top of the tree touches the ground at a distance of 5 from the trunk. Calculate the original height of the tree.

Result

x =  10.403 m

#### Solution:

$x=4+\sqrt{ 4^2+5^2 } \doteq 10.4031=10.403 \ \text{m}$ Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
