The distance from the top of a tower to a point on the ground located 30 meters from the base of the tower is 5 meters more than twice the height of the tower. How high os the tower to the nearest meter?

let height of tower is x

then by Pythagoras therom

(5+x)^2 = x^2 + (30)^2

25+x^2+10x= x^2 + 900

25+10x= 900

x=87.5 meter
