# Thunderstorm

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

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

Result

x =  4.55 m
