Need help with this real world problem.
"A 65 foot rope hangs from the top of a pole. When pulled taut to it's fullest length the rope reaches a point on the ground 30 feet from the base of the pole. Find the height of the pole to the NEAREST TENTH of a foot. Let P equal the height of the pole. "Use the Pythagorean Theorem".
So far I have:
a^2+b^2=c^2
30^2+p^2=65^2
900+p^2=4,225
p^2=4,225-900
p^2=3,325
p= ??????
I can't seem to get that last part about finding the height of the pole to the nearest tenth of a foot.
