Q:
# Mark is flying a kite and realizes that 300 feet of string is out. Mark anchored the kite to the ground. The angle of the string with the ground is 42.5β. How high is Mark's kite above the ground? Find your answer to the nearest tenth.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:The kite is 202.7 feet above the groundStep-by-step explanation:The scenario is depictedd in the picture attachedwe have to find the height.Trigonometric ratios will be used to find the height.So,[tex]sin\ (42.5) = \frac{h}{300}\\ 0.6756=\frac{h}{300}\\0.6756*300=h\\202.68 = h[/tex]The height is 202.68 feetRounding off to the nearest tenth202.7 feetTherefore, the kite is 202.7 feet above the ground ..
