A tree is broken by wind. if the point from where it broke is 6m above the ground and its top touches the ground at a distance of 8m from its foot. Find the total height of the tree before it broke.
Here after the tree broke, a right angle is formed. U must have learnt the formula,Hypotenuse² = leg.1²+ leg 2²As we do not know the length of hypotenuse, we can mention it as the letter, x.X²= 8² + 6²X²= 64+36X²= 100X= 10m(10×10=100)Now we got the length of the hypotenuse-10mFor finding the height of the tree before it broke, we have to add the length of the hypotenuse and the height of the point from where it broke.=10+6= 16mThumbs up please!
