Did you look up the latitude for your town?

4. highschoolmom2010

no

5. highschoolmom2010

i beleive it was using an example

6. Mertsj

Then what are you going to replace l with? The problem says that l is the latitude and a is the greatest angle of elevation.

7. timo86m

you have to look up that stuff

8. Mertsj

Then it says to find the latitude of your town.

9. highschoolmom2010

im not sure so i have to actually look up the latitude of my exact location......thats retarded >:(

10. timo86m

google the latitude of your town then plug it in and evaluate and that should be your a

Fill in the blank with the town where you live.

16. timo86m

LOL dont worry as a mod mertsj know :P thru IP

17. Mertsj

You don't have to. Find it and substitute it into the equation given in the problem and solve for a

18. highschoolmom2010

so would i round 34.1833 to 35?

19. highschoolmom2010

er 34 sorry

20. Mertsj

Since the problem gives 3 significant digits, I would round to 34.2

21. highschoolmom2010

a=90-34.2+23.5

22. highschoolmom2010

a=79.3

23. highschoolmom2010

did i do that correct
