From a point 300ft from a building, the angle of elevation to the base of an antenna on the roof is 32.7 degrees. The angle of elevation to the top of the antenna is 42.3 degrees. What is the height of the antenna alone? Would this be a situation for csc sec and cot?

i don't know which one I would use :/

so find x, using the tan ratio |dw:1433277260515:dw|
campbell_st
  • campbell_st
well you have the adjacent and need to find the opposite...?
campbell_st
  • campbell_st
so which ratio uses opposite and adjacent..?

tan
campbell_st
  • campbell_st
great so \[\tan(32.7) = \frac{x}{300}\] solve for x
campbell_st
  • campbell_st
repeat the process to the top of the antenna |dw:1433277446569:dw| this time find y. The height of the antenna is y - x hope it helps...

tan(32.7) = .64 * 300 for x? so 192.6 for the first one
campbell_st
  • campbell_st
great... so repeat the process... to find y... then you can find the height of the antenna alone hope it makes sense
