Sparkles the cat is stuck in a tree lets use some math skills to get her dow.
Sparkles, my new kitten is stuck in the tree! I need to find out how tall the tree is so I can get her down
tan38 = 191/xtan38(x) = 191tan38/tan38(x) = 191/tan38x = 244.5in 244.5 + 55.5 = 300The Height of the tree is 300in!
I almost forgot! We learned about how to find missing side of triangles in mat class. Now all I got to do is some math and I get sparkles down.
Hmmm... Now all I got to do is make a right triangle and find my height. Seems easy enough!
I have measured that I am 191 inches from the tree and my eyes are 55.5 inches above the ground. This means that the angle where the line of sight meets the tree must be 38 degrees. Now all I have to do are the calculations! wheres my calculator?
We did it! We got Sparkles down! Math is so useful.
