C squared= a squared + b squared C squared = 4.5 squared + 9 squared C squared = 20.25 + 81 C squared = 101.25 Square root 101.25 you get 10.06 round up and you get the answer to be number 1

the answer is 1) 10.1 meters According to the pythagora theorum, h² = a² + b² h² = 4.5² + 9² = 20.25 + 81 thus, h² = 101.25 thus, h = √101.25 thus, h = 10.06230589 units,   or 10.1  rounded to the nearest tenth
