One side

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

Correct result:

h =  9.6462

Solution:

a=36 A=15   tanA=h/a  h=a tan(A)=36 tan(15)=9.6462



We would be very happy if you find an error in the example, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies, and please send it to us. We thank you!
