vance is designing a garden in the shape of an isosceles triangle. the base of the garden is 36 feet long. The function y = 18 tan theta models the height of the triangular garden.
A. What is the height of the triangle when theta=45degrees?
B. What is the height of the triangle when theta=55degrees?
C. Vance is considering using either theta=45 degrees or theta=55degrees for his garden. Compare the areas of the two possible gardens. EXPLAIN how you found the areas.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Do you know how to find the value of tan 45 degrees?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You can use the online calculator here to find the value of tan 45 degrees: http://web2.0calc.com/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Correct. Now what is tan 55 degrees?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Correct again. The area of a triangle is found from: \[\large Area\ of\ \triangle=\frac{b}{2}\times\frac{h}{1}\] where b is the length of the base, and h is the vertical height. Or, in words, half the base times the vertical height. So the area of the triangle when theta is 45 degrees is found from \[\large \frac{36}{2}\times(18\times1)=?\ ft^{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2That is not the correct result for the calculation of the area. Here is the required calculation for the area of the triangle when theta is 45 degrees: \[\large Area=\frac{36}{2}\times(18\times1)=you\ can\ calculate\ \ ft^{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Your result for the area when theta is 45 degrees is correct, except you need to add the units after the number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do i change the height for the degree and the theta

kropot72

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You already used a calculator to find the values of tan 45 degrees and tan 55 degrees. So the height of the triangle when theta is 45 degrees is: h = 18 * 1 = ? And the height when theta is 55 degrees is: h = 18 * 1.428 = ?
