What kind of equation do I need to set up to solve this? If the distance from the top of a building to the tip of its shadow is 150 feet and the sun makes a 75 degree angle with the wall as shown in the image below, what is the length of the shadow? http://curriculum.kcdistancelearning.com/courses/GEOMx-HS-WA10/b/assessments/R-RatiosofRightTrianglesQuiz/Geometry_8.2_Quiz_FINAL_23q.png

    you have an angle--75-- so if you were to put that into a trig calculator and specify the function you would get a number , right?
