 Question 619429: thank you for your assitance-- i have had a llittle trouble in firguring out these type pythagoreum problems-- i am in my math book from school--i am older soon returning to school- so again thank you for saving me time from sitting here all day, literally trying to guess!! (charuethornhill@att.net) thank you again. ok it says: there are two vertical poles of length 6 feet and 8feet stand 10 feet apart. a cable reaches from the top of one pole to some point on the ground between the poles and then to the top of the other pole. where should this point be located use 18 feet cable, the answers are 1.2 feet or 7.5 feet, i am aware of the P thereom thing, but still cannot figure out what going to produce 1,2 or 7.,5 thanks.
