At the circus, an acrobat is standing on a platform that is 27 feet from the ground when he sees a peanut on the ground below. How far is the peanut away from the base of the platform if the angle of elevation from the peanut to top of the acrobat’s platform is 25°?

Answer:12.59 feetaway from the base of the platform.Step-by-step explanation:trigonometry function.cos,sin,andtan. (cosine, sin, and tangent)Cosis for finding and dealing with theadjacentand thehypotenuse.Sinis for finding and dealing with theoppositeand thehypotenuse.Tanis for finding and dealing with theoppositeand theadjacent.oppositeis thebottom base, to the peanut.adjacentis theheight from the bottom base, to the top.hypotenuseis thetop, to the peanut.27 feet would be the adjacent.Since we don’t know bottom base to the peanut, we would call this x. (opposite)*Side note*: The degrees is always in between the adjacent and hypotenuse.tan (degrees) = opposite/adjacenttan 25 = x/2727 * tan 25 = x27 * tan 2512.59The peanut is 12.59 feet away from the base of the platform
