The story takes place in the Bible. The Israelites were in the desert, and had complained to God about everything, instead of being grateful.
I blame everything bad that happened to God! I wish we stayed in Egypt!
God wasn't too happy about the Israelites complaining, so God decided to teach them a lesson by punishing them with snakes.
God please forgive us for our behavior, what must be we do to be healed?
Moses begged God for forgiveness and to heal the Israelites.
Before going further into the story, how tall was the cloud from the ground if Moses was 857.5cm away from the cloud and was looking at the cloud from 60°? (Moses's eyes were 153cm above the ground.)
x - 153
We then move on to building the equation. We have to use SohCahToa. This case, I'll use Tangent. Your equation should look like: Tan (60) = (x-153) / 857.5. If we rewrite the equation, it becomes: x = (857.5 * Tan (60)) + 153 Therefore the cloud is about: 1638.23 cm.
To find how tall the cloud was, we have to first set variables. Let's have x represent how tall the cloud is from the ground.
Make a snake and put it on a poll. If anyone who is bitten looks at the snake, they will be healed.
God forgave them and told Moses how to be healed of the snakes
