    Answer:

    height ≈ 30 ft

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The situation is modelled by a right triangle.

    let h be the height of the totem pole, then

    tan50.1° = \frac{opposite}{adjacent} = \frac{h}{25} ( multiply both sides by 25 )

    25 × tan50.1° = h , then

    h ≈ 30 ft ( to the nearest foot )
