this is the question.you must find the height of the radio station antenna that has been placed at the edge of town. You cannot clib the antenna to measure it; so you must do all your computations from the ground. you stand a distance of 200 feet from the base of the antenna, and you measure the angle of elevation to the top of the antenna tube 60 degrees.findthe height of the antenna.

x is the height of tree, y and z are as denoted in picture:

1. cos(22°)=y/215==>y=cos(22°)*215=199.3 ft
2. sin(22°)=z/215==>z=sin(22°)*215=80.5 ft
3. tan(52°)=(x+z)/y==>x+z=y*tan(52°)=255.1 ft
4. x=255.1-z=255.1-80.5=174.6 ft

A===B

B = bottom of the hill
C = bottom of the antenna
D = top of the antenna

The A-B distance is constant.
The B-C distance is unknown.
The B-C-D distance is unknown.
The C-D distance is given.
The C-A-B angle is given as 25 degrees.
The D-A-C angle is given as 1.5 degrees.

Use SINE and COSINE functions to determine the B-C distance.

### An trigonometry wordproblem

Hi there,

Using the measurements you have given and calculating the others as follows:

Angle A= 30 degrees
Side b= 900 metres
Angle B= 60 degrees
Side b= 1558.845 metres

Therefore length of the slope = 1,800.0000000000002 metres (side c)

Hope this helps. Regards, James
