Jimmy is trying to slingshot his rock all the way up a building and get it to land on the roof. However, he doesn't know how far he should shoot the rock and what angle he should be pointing his slingshot at.
All he knows is that he is standing 5 metres away from a 30-metre high building so he must use the Pythagorean theorem to find the distance.
Now that he knows how far to shoot the rock, Jimmy doesn't know the angle that he has to point his slingshot. In order to find this out, Jimmy must use Cosine law.
Jimmy has now figured out how to get the rock up to the top of the building all thanks to his great math problem-solving skills! Now he goes to a different spot but this time it is a tree but it's slanted!
The tree is standing 16 metres high at an angle of elevation of 88 degrees. If the angle of elevation from where Jimmy is standing to the tree is 43 degrees, Jimmy has to now use sine law to figure out how far to throw the rock.
Finally, Jimmy is a trigonometry slingshot expert! Now he can conquer any building or tree that gets in his way!
