A massive storm broke the top of fifteen-meter spruce so that it remained hanging along the rest of its trunk. The distance of this hanging top from the ground was 4.6 m. At what height was the spruce trunk broken?

Correct answer:

x =  9.8 m

Step-by-step explanation:

x+y=15 x = y+4.6  x+(x4.6)=15  2x=19.6  x=219.6=9.8=9.8 m  x=549=9.8   Verifying Solution:  y=x4.6=9.84.6=526=5.2 m s=x+y=9.8+5.2=15 m
