The pole

The telegraph pole is supported by a 4 m bullet at 3/4 of its height, the end of which is at a distance 2.5 m from the pole post. Calculate the height of the telegraph pole.

Correct answer:

x =  4.1633 m

Step-by-step explanation:

c=4 m a=2.5 m b=c2a2=422.523.1225 m b=3/4 x x=4/3 b=4/3 3.1225=4.1633 m
