## Meehan98 one year ago Isaac's camp is 5,280 ft from a point directly beneath Mt. Morgan. What is the hiking distance along the ridge if the angle of elevation is 25(degrees) 16 (minutes)

I'm know the answer; I just am confused with the first step because I don't know how to properly draw it. This is what I have, but it's incorrect because I'm supposed to use cosine. |dw:1444005671114:dw|

|dw:1444010976932:dw| $\sin \theta =\frac{ opposite }{ hypotenuse }$ The hypotenuse would be the ridge distance Distance is d $\sin 25=\frac{ 5280 }{ d }$ $d \sin25=5280$ $d=\frac{ 5280 }{ \sin 25 }$

Thank you! Sorry I took so long to respond!
