Step 1:draw a triangle
Step 2:label the triangle using the given information .
Step 3: create and solve an equation to find the missing or angle.
At a point 30 feet from the base of a tree, the angle formed with the ground looking to
the top measures 53. Find, to the nearest foot, the height of the tree.
Can someone help me?
40 feet to the nearest foot.
The tree , the distance from the base of the tree on the ground (30 ft) and the distance from this point to the top of the tree form a right triangle.
So if the height of the tree is h:
tan 53 = h / 30
h = 30 tan53
h = 39.81 feet.
$12. that is my answer.
Step 3: create...
