Pythagorean theorem. The flagpole, assuming it is perpendicular to the ground, should form a right triangle such that Jorge's distance to the top can be represented by \[d=\sqrt{h^{2}+L^{2}}\] Where d is the said distance, h is the pole's height, and L is how far Jorge is from the base of the pole.
