Mr Squirrel is very sad. He fell off his tree and now his girlfriend Miss Squirrel is all alone.
Mr. Squirrel knows that he is standing four feet away from the tree, and he is looking at Miss Squirrel at a 65 degree angle.
Mr. Squirrel wants to know how tall the tree is. Luckily, he knows his trig functions! Mr. Squirrel calculates that 65 degrees is equal to 13π / 36.
Since he knows the length of the adjacent side, and he is trying to find the opposite side, he can use tangent.
He also knows that Cot (65) = 1.8 and Sin (65) = 0.22
Tan = Opp / Adj Tan (65) = x / 4Tan (65) x 4 = 8.6 feet
Since Mr. Squirrel knew how tall the tree was, he could climb up and see his squirrel girlfriend. Mr. & Miss Squirrel lived happily ever after.
