3.) A satellite, B, is 17,000 miles from the horizon of Earth. Earth’s radius is about 4,000 miles. Find the approximate distance the satellite is from the Earth’s surface. The diagram is not to scale. http://assets.openstudy.com/updates/attachments/5182a99ee4b0e8530d305e2b-ejune420-1367517607536-3.jpg my answer: 134,464 miles. correct? 4.) Line NA is congruent to line PA, MO is perpendicular to NA, RO is perpendicular to PA, and MO=7 feet. What is PO? http://assets.openstudy.com/updates/attachments/4fd03b3fe4b0e0466317e3ef-mskyeg-1339046737323-cusersmsgpicturesmc0064.jpg

    17000^2 + 4000^2 = (x+4000)^2 x = sqrt(17000^2 + 4000^2) - 4000 x=13464.2 miles
