# Length A guy wire is stretched from a broadcasting tower at a point 200 feet above the ground to an anchor 125 feet from the base (see figure). How long is the wire? To determine

To calculate: The length of wire c if the wire is stretched from a 200 feet high broadcasting tower to an anchor on the ground which is at a distance of 125 feet from the tower.

Explanation

Given Information:

The wire is stretched from a 200 feet high broadcasting tower to an anchor on the ground which is at a distance of 125 feet from the tower.

The figure provide below shows the broadcasting tower.

Formula used:

Pythagorean theorem for any right triangle is such that c2=a2+b2, where a, b are the two perpendicular sides of a triangle and c is the length of hypotenuse.

Calculation:

Consider the length of the base be b, height be a and hypotenuse be c.

The height of the triangle a is 200 ft, the base b is 125 ft and the length of wire is c
