Can someone help me with this please.
An airplane mechanic stands on a runway with a horizontal distance of 28 feet from the base of a control tower. The mechanic sees a pilot in the top of the control tower, 25 feet from the ground. Find the distance (to the nearest tenth of a foot) between the mechanic and pilot.
Distance, to the nearest tenth = ___ ft.
