  • I really want one, but how do I get it though.
  • He knows he is standing 12 ft away from the tree and the tree is abt 15 ft high
  • I need to find how far diagonally from the tree so that I can knock one down
  • Mike realizes the angle formed by the tree and the ground is 95 degrees.
  • I got it I can use the angle given to find the diagonal length
  • c= ?
  • a= 12 ft
  • 950
  • b = 15 ft
  • Mike used the law of cosine that he learned in math class to solve for the length needed
