you are helping to design a road for a high mountain pass. the horizontal distance from one edge of the ravine to the other is 100 ft (x). the rise of the bridge from one side to the other is y and the length of the bridge is r. write a function that models the relationships among x,y, and r (using the Pythagorean theorem). then solve for the equation for r in terms of x and y.

In this case,

According to Pythagorean theorem;

x^2 + r^2 = y^2

Now x=100ft

100^2 + r^2 = y^2

y^2 - r^2 = 1000

Now solving equation for r

r^2 = y^2 - 1000

r = sqareroot(y^2-1000)
