right triangle formed by: half the horizontal (5 mi), as one leg (a) height of the bulge above the horizontal, as the other leg (b) half the expanded bridge as the hypotenuse. 5mi + 5ft (c) : Convert 5ft to miles and add to 5 mi: 5/5280 = 5.00094697 mi is the hypotenuse : a^2 + b^2 = c^2 : 5^2 + b^2 = 5.00094697^2 : 25 + b^2 = 25.00947059 : b^2 = 25.00947059 - 25 : b^2 = 0.00947059 b = .097317 mi is the height of the bulge Convert to ft .097317 * 5280 = 513.8 ft
