Find the height between the two floors if you know that the number of steps between the two floors is 18, the gradient is 30º, and the step length is 28.6 cm. Report the result in centimeters to the nearest centimeter.

Correct answer:

x =  297 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

n=18 A=30° rad=30° 180π =30° 1803.1415926 =0.5236=π/6 a=28.6 cm  tanA=ax1=28.616.5122=0  x1=a tan(A)=28.6 tan0.523616.5122 cm  x=n x1=18 16.5122=297 cm
