Hi, my name is Josh. I am on the football team. I am practicing my throws.
Josh looks at the field goal and calculates how far away it is.The field goal is 20 ft tall and he is looking at it at an angle of 55°. He uses tan and finds out that it is 14ft away.
Josh throws the ball at the 10 ft field goal and his throw was 20 ft long . He wants to figure out his angle of elevation so he uses sin and it is 30°
His coach comes to watch him. She wants to see how far he can throw. He is standing 14 ft away from the field goal and looking at it at and angle of 60°. She uses cos and finds that he can throw the ball 28 ft.
