# In Exercises 27 to 34, use the drawings, where provided, to solve each problem. Angle measures should be given to the nearest degree; distances should be given to the nearest tenth of a unit.Zaidah is flying a kite at an angle of elevation of 67◦ from a point on the ground. If 100ft of kite string is out, how far is the kite above the ground? To determine

To find:

The length of the kite above the ground.

Explanation

In a right angle triangle,

1) The side PQ, which is opposite to the right angle PRQ is called the hypotenuse.

(The hypotenuse is the longest side of the right triangle.)

2) The side RQ is called the adjacent side of angle θ.

3) The side PR is called the opposite side of angle θ.

Hence, the sine ratio for an acute angle is oppositehypotenuse

Given:

From, the given diagram,

Angle measures is 67, Hypotenuse = 100 ft.

Let a be the opposite side, that is the distance of the kite above the ground
