• Jace is practicing basketball at Jason High. While he was practicing, his ball got stuck on the rim. Jace is 17 feet away looking at the ball at an angle of 45 degrees. He uses Trig to find out how high the ball is. He finds out that tan(45) x 10= 10. Therefore the basketball is 10 feet high.
• Jace is practicing soccer at Vaden High. He wants to be able to hit the top left corner of the crossbar. H﻿e uses trig to figure out what angle to kick the soccer ball at. He finds out that tan(x) = 5/8. After working out the problem, he figures out that he must kick the ball at a 32 degree angle.
