Question

Your kite is stuck in a tree that is 40 feet tall. The angle your string makes with the ground is 72°. Rather than worrying about the kite, you decide to calculate how much string you have let out. Assuming the string is held tight and makes a straight line to the ground, how much string have you let out?

    Answer:

    42 feet of string

    Step-by-step explanation:

    First, draw a diagram of the string, the height and the angle.

    the length of the string is equal to the hypotenuse of the triangle

    let length of the string=x

    sin(θ)=opp/hyp

    sin(72°)=40ft/x

    x=40ft/sin(72°)

    x=42.05848897ft≈42ft
