A geologist at point A measures the distance and angle of elevation to two columns of the Glen Rose formation in Texas. If the distance AS = 790ft and the distance AN = 883ft, compute the difference in the heights of the two columns to the nearest foot. [A] 1 ft [B] 970 ft [C] 260 ft [D] 118 ft

sin(49) = length of SB/length of AS sin(54) = length of NC/length of AN
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh ok..
anonymous
  • anonymous
How would I find the length of SB?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
what is the length of AS?
anonymous
  • anonymous
790
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
great! so you can use my equation to find the length of SB sin(49) = length of SB/length of AS
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
put in the length of AS and solve for SB
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok, let me try.
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
make sure your calculator is in degree mode
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok. Would I divide AS by sin(49?
anonymous
  • anonymous
How would that work?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
not quite: here's a hint: a = b/c b = c*a
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok..

596.2?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
great! now do the same thing for the second equation: sin(54) = length of NC/length of AN

So the answer (final) would be D, correct?
Vocaloid
