    Answer:

    113.16 feet

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Representing the given details appropriately with a right angle triangle. Let the length of the string for the kite be represented by x. Applying required trigonometric function, we have:

    Sin θ = \frac{opposite}{hypotenuse}

    Sin 59^{o} = \frac{97}{x}

    x = \frac{97}{Sin59^{o} }

      = \frac{97}{0.8572}

      = 113.1591

    x = 113.16 feet

    Thus, the string for the kite is 113.16 feet long.
