we need to find h . We can use the trigonometry here . take tan 6 degree for this triangle
i am in geometry 2 not trigonometry....
i have no idea what trig is about
Oh then I think you need to take approximation \[\huge \boxed{\theta =\dfrac{\text{arc length}}{radius}}\]
here it will be theta =h/5
first convert 6 degree to radian measure..then use this formula
