If you use the Pythagorean theory then you will get a^2 +100=676 a^2=576 a=24

Let the length of the flagpole be x. We can use the pythagorean theorem to find the length of the pole since the triangle in the figure is a right angled triangle. By pythagorean theorem, (10)² + (x)² = (26)² (x)² = (26)² - (10)² (x)² = 676 - 100 (x)² = 576 x = √(576) x = 24 Hence, the answer is D.
