Question

Jackie is flying a kite. She let out 200 ft of string and stakes the kite to the ground. Find how high the kite is if the angle of evelation is 34°?

1 Answer

  • 200 feet is the hypotenuse and the height is the opposite side

    sine (34) = height / 200
    height = 200 * sine (34)
    height = 200 * 0.55919
    height = 111.838
