- A drone
A flying drone aimed the area for an architect. He took off perpendicularly from point C to point D. He was 300 m above ABC's plane. The drone from point D pointed at a BDC angle of 43°. Calculate the distance between points C and B in meters.
- Right triangle trigonometrics
Calculate the size of the remaining sides and angles of a right triangle ABC if it is given: b = 10 cm; c = 20 cm; angle alpha = 60°, and the angle beta = 30° (use the Pythagorean theorem and functions sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent)
- The rescue helicopter
The rescue helicopter is above the landing site at a height of 180m. The rescue operation site can be seen from here at a depth angle of 52°40'. How far will the helicopter land from the rescue site?
- Cone side
Calculate the volume and area of the cone whose height is 10 cm, and the axial section of the cone has an angle of 30 degrees between height and the cone side.
- Three pillars
On a straight road, three pillars are 6 m high at the same distance of 10 m. At what angle of view does Vlado see each pillar if it is 30 m from the first and his eyes are 1.8 m high?
- Measurements 8129
The plane flies at an altitude of 22.5 km to the observatory. At the time of the first measurement, it was seen at an elevation angle of 28° and during the second measurement at an elevation angle of 50°. Calculate the distance it flies between these two
- Two boats
Two boats are located from a height of 150m above the lake's surface at depth angles of 57° and 39°. Find the distance of both boats if the sighting device and both ships are in a plane perpendicular to the lake's surface.
- Powerplant chimney
From the building window at the height of 7.5 m, we can see the top of the factory chimney at an altitude angle of 76° 30 ′. We can see the chimney base from the same place at a depth angle of 5° 50 ′. How tall is the chimney?
- Tetrahedral pyramid
Determine the surface of a regular tetrahedral pyramid when its volume is V = 120 and the angle of the sidewall with the base plane is α = 42° 30'.

- Perpendicular 17423
According to the map, the scouts were supposed to proceed through the forest perpendicular to its straight edge, where the goal was 3 km away from the starting point. They already deviated from the correct direction by 5° at the start. How far from the ta
The train is moving at a speed of 60 km/h. Raindrops falling vertically in the absence of wind (with uniform movement due to the action of air resistance) leave traces on the windows of the train, deviating from the vertical direction by 30°. How fast are
- A hiker
