Textbook Problem

A kite is flying at an angle of elevation of 670 with the ground. If 100 ft of string have been paid out to the kite, how far is the kite above the ground? Answer to the nearest foot. To determine

To find:

The height of the kite from the ground to the nearest foot.

Explanation

Given:

A kite is flying at an angle of elevation of 670 with the ground. If 100 ft of string have been paid out to the kite.

Approach:

In a right triangle, the sine ratio for an acute angle is the ratio oppsite sidehypotenuse.

Calculation:

From the diagram, hypotenuse = 100 ft, and the angle is 670.

Let the opposite side be x ft
