Joe's Blog

This blog is for Miss Jovanovich's algebra and geometry classes to share ideas, ask questions, and reflect on what skills and topics we are studying. If we are lucky, we might even get a chance to connect with other students studying the same stuff.

Hi everyone! Just writing because before I could add my review question, Blogmeister shut itself down! NOOOOOO!!!!


Well, anyway, here’s my Trigonometry Review question:


Kevin and Zane have just built a tree house. It is 20 ft off the ground, and the tree is perpendicular to the ground. When Kevin’s Mom goes out to look at the tree house, the angle of elevation from her feet to the tree house is 50*. Zane wants to know how far the tree that has the tree house in it is from the house, but he has lost the tape measure. How far away is the tree from the house?


 


***SPOILER ALERT***


 


Answer: Roughly 17 Feet
