A silver statue of Pooja is leaning against a wall. The top of her head touches the wall at 40 feet. If the base of the statue is 9 feet away from the wall, how tall is Pooja’s statue, in feet?
Pooja is the hypotenuse of a right triangle with 40 foot and 9 foot legs.
By Pythagoras' Theorem: hypotenuse2 = 402 + 92
Pooja's height = square root of 1681
Pooja's height = 41 feet
