    im sorry sir but thats wrong... that would be the hypotenuse. Because shortleg times 2 = hypotenuse. and short leg times sqrt3= long leg. and i just frekin found out how...wow i fail...it is short leg/sqrt3 i think?

    There are many ropes keeping a hot air balloon from floating away before a balloon race. One of these ropes is fixed to the ground at a 45° angle. Another is fixed to the ground at a 30° angle. If the hot air balloon is 18 feet off the ground, what is the distance between the ground directly underneath the balloon and the second rope rounded to the nearest hundredth of a foot?
