Jonathan and the Coconut Stealing Bat
This storyboard does not have a description.
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
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.
