Meteorologist Wendy Stevens uses
a theodolite (an angle-measuring device) on a
1-meter-tall tripod to find the height of a weather
balloon. She views the balloon at a 44° angle of
elevation. A radio signal from the balloon tells her
that it is 1400 meters from her theodolite.
a.How high is the balloon?
b.How far is she from the point directly below the balloon?
c.If Wendy’s theodolite were on the ground rather
than on a tripod, would your answers change?
Explain your reasoning.
