Step 1:  According to the given measurements construct an image. And understand the question.

              NOTE: Pole height = 18 m

                             Stake length = 24 m

                            

                          


Step 2:Apply the Pythagoras formula for unknown value.

              FORMULA:   (hypotenuse)^2 = (side)^2 + (side)^2

                       AC^2 = AB^2 + BC^2

                                 24^2 = 18^2 + BC^2

                                         BC^2 = 576 - 324

                                                   BC^2 = 6 \sqrt{7}

      Therefore, the distance from the base is BC^2 = 6 \sqrt{7} cm
