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
