Look at the picture of a scaffold used to support construction workers. The height of the scaffold can be changed by adjusting two slanting rods, one of which, labeled PR, is shown: A support structure is shown in which a right triangle PQR is formed with the right angle at Q. The length of PQ is shown as 14 feet, and the length of QR is shown as 8 feet.. Part A: What is the approximate length of rod PR? Round your answer to the nearest hundredth. Explain how you found your answer, stating the theorem you used.
