A monument in the shape of a right triangle sits on a rectangular pedestal that is 5 meters high by 11 meters long. The longest side of the triangular monument measures 61 meters, and its base is the same length as the pedestal.

How high off the ground is the top of the monument?

The height off the ground is given by  :

 

5  + √[61^2 - 11^2 ]   =  65 m

It depends on whether the longest side is the hypotenuse or a leg.
