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 15 feet off the ground, what is the distance between the two ropes rounded to the nearest hundredth of a foot?

tan 30 = 15/AC AC = 15 / tan 30 BC = 15 / tan 45 distance between 2 ropes AB = AC - BC = 15/ tan 30 - 15 tan 45
typo its 15/tan30 - 15 / tan 45
