The top of a brok A. 25 m

B. 13 m

C. 18 m

D. 17 m

Answer :

Given: Height of broken tree = 5m


Base distance of tree touch the ground = 12cm


Formula Used/Theory:-


Pythagoras theorem:-


Base2 + Height2 = Hypotenuse2


Length of broken tree is :-


Base2 + Height2 = Hypotenuse2


122 + 52 = Hypotenuse2


144 + 25 = Hypotenuse2


169 = Hypotenuse2


Height of broken tree = √ 169 = 13m


Height of tree = length of broken tree + 5m


= 13m + 5m = 18m
