A slide 5.7 meters long makes an angle of thirty-two 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.

did 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.

that's not a choice?

No, I have 1.42 m, 1.55 m, 2.45 m, and 1.36 m. This problem is really confusing.

the angle between the ground and the slide is 32 degrees and the slide is 5.7 meters long?
anonymous
  • anonymous
if that's correct the height is 5.7sin(32)

Hmmm. I'm having a talk with my teacher tomorrow.
