Charlie is at a small airfield watching for the approach of a small plane with engine trouble. He sees the plane at an angle of elevation of 32 . At the same time, the pilot radios Charlie and reports the plane’s altitude is 1,700 feet. Charlie’s eyes are 5.2 feet from the ground. Draw a sketch of this situation (you do not need to submit the sketch).
Find the ground distance from Charlie to the plane. Explain your work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2here u go i got it tan(x) = opposite over adjacent tan(32) = (1,700  5.2) / x x tan(32) = 1,694.8 x = 1,694.8/ (tan(32)) x = 2712.25 feet
