#### Storyboard Text

• Hey it's Stan and I want to go on an adventure and figure some things out.
• Figuring it Out
• The name is Murphy and I am here to help.
• To find the angle we have to take what we know and use either sin, cos or tan.
• hypotenuse
• 12 Ft.
• Xo
• 5 Ft.
• So it would be cosxo = 5/12 cos-1 (5/12) = x x = 65.4o is the angle of where it positioned.
• The ladder is positioned at a weird angle
• X
• Well we have the angle which is 50o and we know that the ladder and the slide are 7 ft apart, which is adjacent to the angle and X is he height of the ladder. So we will use tan.
• 7 Ft.
• 50o
• That slide looks very tall, how tall do you think it is Murphy?
• So tan50o  = x/7 7tan50o = x x = 8.3 ft is the height. That is one tall slide for sure.
• I am pretty sure this is where I left my kite on a tree yesterday when I was rushing home.
