Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So the height, is found with the pythagorean theorem 17^2 = 8^2 + h^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh, they gave you the volume at the start, so you could have figured h, without all the triangle things... V = 2400 = 1/2 * 16 * h * 20
