The gable

The gable of the house has the shape of an isosceles triangle, which has a base length of 14 meters and arms with a length of 8 meters. What is the tall gable of the house?

Correct answer:

h =  3.873 m

Step-by-step explanation:

a=14 m r=8 m  r2=h2+(a/2)2  h=r2(a/2)2=82(14/2)2=15=3.873 m
