#### Storyboard Text

• Michael wants to touch the rim. The only problem is he doesn't know how high the rim is.﻿
• ﻿﻿?
• Tan35 = 15 / X﻿
• The only way Michael knows how to solve for the height of the rim is by using Trigonometry﻿
• ﻿He is standing 15 feet from the rim
• ﻿Michael must now find all of the measurements needed in order to put an equation together.
• 15ft
• ﻿Im 5 feet tall. Im looking up at the rim by a 35 degree angle
• ﻿5Ft
• Now all Michael has to do is put the numbers into the equation﻿ and solve
• ﻿X
• 35﻿
• 15ft﻿
• Michael is going to use the Tangent of 35 degrees to solve the opposite over adjacent﻿
• X(Tan35)=15 X = 15/tan35 X = 21.42 feet﻿
• YESSSS!!!! I have found the height of the rim Thanks to Trigonometry
• The height of the rim ﻿is 21.42 feet
• Thanks to the help of trigonometry Michael can touch the rim﻿
