Answer:11.85

Step-by-step explanation:Tan 28 = opposite / adjacent

Answer:the distance from the pole is

11.85 ft.Step-by-step explanation:Given;

the elevation to the top of the pole, θ = 28⁰

height of the pole, h = 6.3 ft

let the distance from the pole = x

If a sketch of a right triangle is made as follows, it will be observed that the base of the triangle forms the adjacent side of the triangle, which is equal to x.

↑ h = 6.3 ft

28⁰ —————

x

Therefore, the distance from the pole is

11.85 ft.
