Storyboard Text

  • While Jonathan was far out in the ocean, he noticed that there was a bat trying to get his coconuts out of the palm tree.
  • But then his dog Buddy came and started barking up the tree
  • WOOF!!!
  • Since he wanted to find out how tall the tree was, and knowing that the dog was 6 feet from the tree and that the triangle made a 36.87 degree angle with the ground, he did 6tan(36.87) to find out that the tree was 8 feet tall.
  • Since he wanted to see how the angle changed since he was 4 feet farther than the dog, he did tan-1(8/10) to find that it made a 38.62 degree angle with the ground
  • To find out how long the distance was from the ground where he was standing to the bat he did 8/(cos 38.62) to find that it is 12.8 feet away.
  • And then the dog scared the bat off so they could keep their coconuts for later.
