Thales

Thales is 1 m from the hole. The eyes are 150 cm above the ground and look into the hole with a diameter of 120 cm as shown. Calculate the depth of the hole.

Correct answer:

h2 =  1.8 m

Step-by-step explanation:

h1=150 cm m=150:100  m=1.5 m x1=1 m x2=1.2 m h1:x1=h2:x2  h2=h1 x1x2=1.5 11.2=59 m=1.8 m
