Question

Asked Aug 29, 2019

Stonehenge in Salisbury Plains, England, was constructed using solid stone blocks weighing over 99,000 pounds each. Lifting a single stone required 550 people, who pulled the stone up a ramp inclined at an angle of 9°. Approximate the distance that a stone was moved in order to raise it to a height of 32 feet. (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)

______ft

Step 1

Consider the ramp as a right triangle in which the hypotenuse (*c*) is the ramp’s slope up which the 99,000 lb block of stone is to be hauled. Also note ...
