Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0r = 30 is given to us but h will need to be calculated using the pythagorean theorem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0maybe you made a mistake in calculating h. using pythagorean theorem... \[50^2 = h^2 + 30^2\] h should then equal \[h = \sqrt{50^2  30^2}\]
