Radio and TV stations broadcast from high towers. Their signals are picked up by radios and TVs in homes within a certain radius. Because Earth is spherical, these signals don't get picked up beyond the point of tangency which could be calculated using the Pythagorean Theorem"

Question: Can you describe how you would calculate the point of tangency?

Solution Summary

The method of calculating the point of tangency is discussed.

Use the PythagoreanTheorem to determine if an angle is the right angle (3-4-5 triangle).
What would you use the PythagoreanTheorem for? List one example either from work or personal life or any other application.

The Numbers 3,4, and 5 are called Pythagorean triples since 3^2 + 4^2 = 5^2. The Numbers 5,12, and 13 are also Pythagorean triples since 5^2 + 12^2 =13^2. Can you find any other Pythagorean triples? Actually, there are alot of formulas that will generate as infinite number of Pythagorean Triples.
Make sure you select at least

The PythagoreanTheorem can also be proved directly, by choosing 0 at the right angle of a right-angled triangle whose other two vertices are u and v.
Show that |v - u|^2 = |u|^2 + |v|^2 under these conditions, and explain why this is the Pythagoreantheorem.

Suppose you travel north for 35 kilometers then travel east 65 kilometers. How far are you from your starting point? Can you show me how you got the answer?

A right triangle is a triangle with one angle measuring 90°. In a right triangle, the sides are related by PythagoreanTheorem, where c is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the 90° angle). Find the hypotenuse when the other 2 sides' measurements are 3 feet and 4 feet.

Measure the height of your computer monitor to the nearest tenth of a centimeter of sixteenth of an inch. Measure the width of your monitor as well. Use the Pythagoreantheorem to find the length of the diagonal of your monitor.
In your post, include the height, the width, and the calculations needed to determine the length

"There is a bamboo 10 ft. high, the upper end of which being broken reaches the ground 3 feet from the stem. Find the height of the break."
Please show your work in steps so I can understand the process used to solve it.

i want write a program that solves the PythagoreanTheorem. Allow the
user to input two of the three sides of a right triangle and the program will output
the missing side, but most importantly, I want the program to also output the measures of the unknown angles in the triangle, using asin(), acos(), and atan().
