Hey did you know there was a shooting star happening tonight?
If the aliens wanted to find out how long the shooting star was, they could multiply the horizontal length by the cosine of the 45 degree formed. doing this says that the shooting star is 14.14 ft. long
"that star is getting pretty close! " In order to calculate the trajectory of the star, you can take the inverse tangent of the ratio of the vertical and horizontal distance between them. This means that the angle of trajectory is 68 degrees.
Oh no! we need to get closer together...I don't know how far apart we are.
all we need to do is divide our horizontal distance by the sine of the angle from the triangle formed by our distance apart. according to my calculations, we are 28.87 feet apart.
