One side

One side is 36 long with a 15° incline. What is the height at the end of that side?

Result

h =  9.646

Solution:

a=36 A=15   tanA=h/a  h=a tan(A)=36 tan(15)9.64629.646a=36 \ \\ A=15 \ ^\circ \ \\ \ \\ \tan A=h / a \ \\ \ \\ h=a \cdot \ \tan(A)=36 \cdot \ \tan(15^\circ ) \doteq 9.6462 \doteq 9.646
