Q:
# An vulture is perched 40 ft up in a tree and looks down at an angle of depression of a 35? angle and spots roadkill. How far is the roadkill from the vulture? Round to the nearest tenth

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:69.7 ftStep-by-step explanation:we know thatThe function sine of angle of 35 degrees is equal to divide the opposite side to the angle of 35 degrees (the height of the vulture in a tree) by the hypotenuse ( the distance from the vulture to the roadkill)Letz -----> the distance from the vulture to the roadkillsin(35Β°)=40/zz=40/sin(35Β°)=69.7 ft
