    sin θ = length of leg opposite the angle length of hypotenuse sin 42° = h 3, 280 0.67 ≈ h 3, 280 h = 3,280(0.67) ≈ 2,195 The height of the glider is about 2,195 feet.

    Find the length of the side opposite the angle: sin θ = length of leg opposite the angle length of hypotenuse sin 42° = h 3, 280 0.67 ≈ h 3, 280 h = 3,280(0.67) ≈ 2,195 The height of the glider is about 2,195 feet.
