A slide 5.7 meters long makes an angle of thirtytwo degrees with the ground. How high is the top of the slide above the ground?
I'm having a hard time solving this. I don't know what to do with it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0did you draw the picture? You can construct a right triangle with hypotenuse 5.7 meters and angle of elevation 32 degrees. sin=O/H. sin(32)=height/5.7. 5.7*sin(32) is your height.
