We can use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of guy wire needed. The square of the distance between the wire on the ground and the pylon on the ground is 90,000 feet. The square of the height of the pylon is 160,000 feet. So the length of the guy wire can be found by evaluating $\sqrt{90,000+160,000}$. What is the length of the guy wire? 66. A car accelerates at a rate of $6-\frac{\sqrt{4}}{\sqrt{t}}{\text{ m/s}}^{2}$ where t is the time in seconds after the car moves from rest. Simplify the expression.
