The height of the pole before the storm is 10 m. After a storm, when they check it, they see that the ground from the pole blows part of the column. The distance from the pole is 3 meters. At how high was the pole broken?

(In fact, the pole created a rectangular triangle. 10-x, 3, and hypotenuse how much is x).

Correct answer:

x =  4.55 m

Step-by-step explanation:

c2=x2+32 x+c = 10 (10x)2=x2+32 20x=91 x=91/20=4.55=4.55 m


20x = 91

x = 91/20 = 4.55

x = 91/20 = 4.55
