What math level are u in

4. wio

You think you draw better than me?

5. katlin95

well tonight Im finishing my geometry class, and algebra 2

6. wio

Do you know SOH CAH TOA?

7. katlin95

lol @wio is was part of the problem lol

8. katlin95

no I dont know that person

9. katlin95

problem lol

SOH CAH TOA is the trig functions

Use Sine law

12. MsSmiley123

You have to do a proportion

15. jennychan12

not necesarily a proportion. sine 75 = x/50

16. wio

$\sin(75^\circ) = \frac{x}{50}$You want to find $$x$$ because the opposite side is the length of the shadow.

17. katlin95

I got D for my answer

18. jennychan12

just solve for x
