    Assume that the Earth is flat for the purposes of this problem.

    The outer edge of the region that the broadcasts can be received in is the
    locus of points 24 miles from the station, which is a circle of radius 24 miles.

    It is an insult! You quote Bruno and assume it is flat.

    For this problem only. The original poster would not understand if I said
    that the boundary was the upper part of the surface of a sphere of radius
    24 miles cut off by the near spherical surface of the Earth.
