Storyboard Text

  • This is Sam. Sam has decided to make a new skating ramp illegally. 
  • The ramp will end on this point of the building. For it to be safe it has to have an angle of 67 from the ground. 
  • The building is 30ft tall.
  • Knowing the building is 30 ft long and having 2 angles, the 67 degree angle and 90 degree angle find how long he had to make the ramp (Hypotenuse).
  • Sam uses trigonometry, he remembers that the inside angles of a triangle equal 180, using the angles he knows he finds what the third angle is.
  • 180 minus 90 equals 90 and 90 minus 67 equals 23! 
  • Sam then uses trigonometry to find how long the board he needs is going to be.
  • sin67 divided by 30 equals 32.6 if I multiply it by sin90 it equadls 32.6
  • I don't have a board that long......
