John had the ball that rolled into the pool and it swam in the water. Its highest point was 2 cm above the surface. Diameter of circle that marked the water level on the surface of the ball was 8 cm. Determine the diameter of John ball.


D =  10 cm

I need more explanation as to where these equations are coming from.


Pythagorean theorem is the base for the right triangle calculator. Looking for help with calculating roots of a quadratic equation? Do you have a linear equation or system of equations and looking for its solution? Or do you have quadratic equation? See also our trigonometric triangle calculator.
