Two neighboring cottagers have cottages under the forest by the stream. They decided to build a bridge over the stream at a place far from the two huts. The distance between the cottages is 230 m; one cottage is 120 m from the stream, and the other is 85 m from the stream. Distances are perpendicular distances. How far will they be from the bridge?
