A blimp provides aerial television views of a football game. The
television camera sights the stadium at a 7 degree angle of depression. The altitude of
the blimp is 400 m. What is the lineofsight distance from the television camera
to the case of the stadium? Round to the nearest hundred meters.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x (sin 7)=400\[\frac{ x (\sin 7) }{ \sin 7 }=\frac{ 400 }{ \sin 7 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1FIrst of all sin 7=0.1218 roughly. SO plug it in 0.1218 =400/x cross multipy x = 3284.07 rounding to nearest hundred metter is x = 3284.07 ^ 3300
