- 40° X??8 feet
- Oh no, My kite! Matthew help me get it out!!
- Matthew has been fishing all day and has caught nothing.
- I need to use (8)sin(40)=X. And with that, X=5.96 feet!
- In all of his free time, waiting, he has figured out that his fishing pole is 8 feet from the water, and he is at a 40° angle from the water.
- 40° X??8 feet
- The next day, Matthew and his sister, Jessica go to the park together. But sad news! Jessica got her kite stuck in a tree. :(
- Matthew John X?? 17 feet 28 feet 114° Teddy
- In our case, X^2 = 28^2+17^2-2(28)(17)cos(114).
- Matthew has been fishing all day and has caught nothing. In his free time, he has figured out that his fishing pole is 8 feet from the water, and he is at a 40° angle from the water.
- Finally! Mathew sees a fish, but needs to know how far to let his fishing line down to get to the fish!
- They know that Teddy makes a 114° angle with both of them, Matthew is 17 feet away from Teddy, and John is 28 feet from Teddy.
