A rain gutter is to be constructed of aluminum sheets 12 inches wide. After marking off a length of 4 inches from each edge, this length is bent up at an angle Θ. The area A of the opening may be expressed as the function: A(Θ) = 16 sin Θ • (cos Θ + 1). If Θ = 30°, what is the area of the opening?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\Large A(\theta) = 16*\sin(\theta)*(\cos(\theta) + 1)\] \[\Large A(30^{\circ}) = 16*\sin(30^{\circ})*(\cos(30^{\circ}) + 1)\] \[\Large A(30^{\circ}) = 16*\frac{1}{2}*(\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2} + 1)\] \[\Large A(30^{\circ}) \approx 16*0.5*(0.866025 + 1)\] \[\Large A(30^{\circ}) \approx ???\]
