coach hopkins is the round rock high school wrestling coach.one day he got a new mat but he needs to know how big the mat is so he knows where to put it
he needs to find the height of the mat.coach hopkins is standing 47 feet away from the mat and the angle of elevation is 35 degrees.to find the height of the mat you do 47Tan35 which is equal to 32.9 and you can round that to 33ft
Next,Coach hopkins wants to find the last angle.since the height of the mat is 33ft and coach hopkins is 47 feet away.you do tan-1 (33/47) the answer of that is 35degrees.
Now that coach hopkins knows the size of the mat he can unload it and and lay it out in the gym so his team can finally practice on their new mat.
The next day his wrestling team comes in excited to be able to use the new mat. But noooooo they cant use their new mat for 3 weeks,coach says you have to let it sit and you have to clean it and say nice things to it.so it turns out that the wrestling team cant use there brand new mat until their seasons almost over.
