Nana is hungry and looking for a snack So she goes into the kitchen
Nana is looking at a cookie jar on top of the fridge. she is looking up at an angle of 30 degrees and is 60 ft away from the fridge. what is the distance between her and the cookie?
Cos(30)=60 / x x=60 / cos(30) =69.2823
She realized that shes way to short to reach the cookie jar so she looks for another snack.
.She finds a jar of candy next to the stove. She looks up at it 50 degrees.the distance between her and the candy is 5 feet. she wonders how tall the counter next to the stove is. She uses trigonometry to find that it is 4.19 feet.
Tan(50)= 5 / x x = 5 / Tan (50) = 4.19
x= 12/Tan(20) x=26.85
She decided not to get candy. Then she saw another jar on the fridge. She got a chair. Nana had to reach her arm to get to the snack on top of the fridge. She is looking up at an angle of 20 degrees. The height of the fridge from the stool is 12 ft. Nana uses trigonometry to determine how long she needs to reach.
She finally gets a snack to eat and lives happily ever after The end
