draw a diagram and let the vertical height = x |dw:1346657572777:dw| use pythagoras' theorem to form a quadratic equation 150^2 = x^2 + (x + 30)^2 or 2x^2 + 60x -21600 = 0 or x^2 + 30x - 10800 = 0 this quadratic factorises so use the positive solution for x as measurement can only be positive the quadratic
