#### Storyboard Text

• Lana needs to hide her diary from her her little brother. she found a great spot on top of the refrigerator. she wanted to know at what angle does she need to throw her diary, so it can reach the top of the refrigerator.
• her diary
• ?
• the fridge is 10 feet above her hand and the distance between her and the fridge is 5 feet. she decided to use what she learned in school to find the angle. she used the equation (arc tan) tan A= (arc tan)10\5. from that equation she figured out that the angle is 63 degrees.

• 10 ft
• Lana now knows at what angel she needs to throw her diary, but she doesn't know how far. she used the equation sin (63) = 10/x and found that x=11.2 feet. Lana then throws her diary and it lands on top of the refrigerator.
• Now i am sure that my brother won't find it.

• Is that Lana's diary?I will steal it and put it back, so she would not know.
• Lana's little brother uses the equation cos (16) = x/5 to find the distance he needs to be to use the stick to push the diary till it falls on the floor. he found out that x= 4.8.
