- Come with us and build a house with precise measurements.Help us solve for the right measurementsLet's Go!
- We know that the angle of inclination between the wall and floor is 30 degrees. The inclined length is 25 ft. To calculate the height we will use sin = (30) x/25/.x/25.The height of the wall is 12.5 ft.
- We need to determine the height of the wall for the house
- h = 25ft
- 30
- y
- x
- We need to find the lenght of one side of the roof.
- We could use trigonometry to find the lenght. The ceiling is 15ft long, while the angle of the ceiling to the roof is 35°. We should use cos 35 = 15/h, h = 15/cos 35. The lenght of the roof is 18.3ft
- o
- a=15ft
- h
- 30
- We need to measure the distance between two windows, lets use trigonometry.
- If the side of the windows is 3ft high, and the angle of the top of one window to the bottom of the other is 20°, then we use tan 20 = o/3, o = 3 • tan 20. The distance between the two windows is 6.7ft
- h
- o
- 20
- a = 3ft
- Thank you for helping us!
