As shown below, an observer (O) is located 400 feet from a building (B). The observer notices a kite (K) flying at a 29° angle of elevation from his line of sight. What equation and trigonometric function can be used to solve for the height (h) of the kite? What is the height of the kite? You must show all work and calculations to receive full credit.
