MIGHTY MT. EVEREST The Earth's surface is composed of gigantic plates that are constantly moving. Currently, India lies on a plate that is slowly drifting northward. India's plate is grinding into the rest of Asia. As it does so, it pushes up the Himalayan Mountains, which contain the world's highest peak, Mt. Everest. In 1999, mountain climbers measured Mt. Everest with satellite gear and found it to be 8850 meters high. Geologists estimate that Mt. Everest may be growing by as much as 5 cm per year. Your Task: Assuming a constant growth of 5 cm per year, determine how tall Mt. Everest was
