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.

make sure the calculator is in degree mode

yes some calculators have different modes for angles in radians and angles in degrees

does the solution make sense?

- anonymous

No, it's none of the options that I'm given.

let me type it in real quick.

- anonymous

i get 3.02 m

- anonymous

that's not a choice?

- anonymous

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

if that's correct the height is 5.7sin(32)

- anonymous

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