A civil engineer is mapping the overhead clearance of his family’s property on a coordinate grid. The ground is represented by the x-axis and the base of the house is at the origin. There are two trees on the property. One tree is 8 feet from the base of the house and is 14 feet tall. The other tree is 16 feet from the base of the house and is 9 feet tall. What is the distance from the base of the house to the closest treetop? Round your answer to the nearest tenth.
