Well, he dove off the diving board till the end of the pool, let this be a vertical height, a
Then he swum the horizontal distance between one end to the other end of the pool, b
Now, they are asking if this distance a + b is same as c, the hypotenuse of the right triangle
Now, we know that a^2 + b^2 = c^2 is true?
But a + b aint c
So, nope, Jason's estimate aint reasonable!
