A hot air balloon climbs continuously along a 30 angle to a height of 5000 feet. To the nearest tenth of a foot, how far has the balloon traveled to reach 5000 feet? Draw a sketch and then solve.

You can you TOA (Tan=Opp/Adj) and Pythagoras theorem to solve.
Use Sine... \[\sin 30 =1/2=5000/x\]
^ that works better.
