# Trigonometric Comic Strip

#### Storyboard Text

• ﻿﻿Welcome to Valley Highschool! My name is Mr. Williams and I am the principal at this fine establishment
• ﻿﻿Hello, My name is Jesse and I'm glad to be hear. However, I do not know my way around the campus. Do you think you can show me where the soccer field is?
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿Here is our Valley Soccer field. This field is one of the best in the area as we have professional sized soccer goals standing at 8 feet tall with each connecting post at 90 degrees.
• Oh wow! But I wonder what the width of the goal is?﻿
• oh my gosh that's so cool!﻿
• ﻿ ﻿﻿﻿﻿8 ft﻿﻿ ﻿﻿
• ﻿﻿﻿ ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿45 degrees ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿We can find the width of the goal using the tangent ratio:tan(45)= = width/8 ft8tan(45) = width width = 8 ft
• ﻿ ﻿90 degrees﻿﻿﻿﻿ ﻿﻿﻿﻿
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿I was also wondering what precautions have been set in place, specifically in the classrooms, for Covid-19?
• ﻿﻿Yes of course, follow me and I can show you!
• ﻿ ﻿8 ft﻿﻿﻿﻿ ﻿﻿
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿What is the area between the 3 desks? ﻿
• ﻿﻿﻿﻿﻿By using Heron's formula, we can find the area between all the desks. s = (6+7+8)﻿﻿﻿﻿/2s=10.5Area= √10.5(10.5-6)(10.5-7)(10.5-8)A≈ 20.33ft
• ﻿ ﻿﻿﻿6 ft﻿﻿ ﻿﻿
• ﻿ ﻿7 ft﻿﻿﻿﻿ ﻿﻿
• ﻿The area is 20.33 ft!
• ﻿Your welcome, have a great rest of your day!
• Thank you for the tour!﻿
