A guy wire 25 ft long supports an antenna at a point that is 20 ft above the base of the antenna. How far from the base of the antenna is the guy wire secured? To determine

To Find:

Length from the base of the antenna to the guy wired secured.

Explanation

Given A guy wire 25 ft. long supports an antenna at a point that is 20 ft above the base of the antenna.

Let x be the length from the base of the antenna to the guy wired secured.

From the figure it is in form of right triangle in which hypotenuse = 25 ft., and one of its side is 20 ft.

From the given data,

252=202+x2625
