Dylan, Seth's turtle, accidentally climbed up the tree. Seth is standing 30 feet away from the tree looking up at about a 70 degree angle. To figure out how high he has to jump, he uses trig. Dylan finds out Tan(70) * 30 = 36.7. This means Seth must climb 36.7 ft to get Dylan back .
By the time Seth runs to go get a ladder, Dylan climbs from the tree to the roof and Seth finds him o n the roof by the pool.
Dylan is 40 ft high and Seths angle to him is 65 degrees. Seth uses trig to discover that 40/tan(65)=18.7. this means Seth is only 18.7 ft away from Dylan
Seth's sticky situation by: kira mahnke
Seths turtle has crawled on the neighbors house. since Seth is 5 ft away from Dylan, and Dylan is 10 ft in the air, to find the angle of evaluation he uses trig. tan-1(10/5)=63.4 degrees
Seth finally was able to catch Dylan and he keeps a close eye on him now.
