Look at it like a triangle on the unit circle: The hypotenuse is 17 feet, the opposite is 8, and the adjacent is 15. Sine is opposite over hypotenuse so divide 8 by 17 and that is your answer.

|dw:1440511815252:dw| Better than SohCahToa : sine and cosine are divided by the hypotenuse. Sine and tangent have to do with the opposite side.
