Math Question help?
A 20-foot ladder makes an angle of 62° with the ground as it leans against a wall. How far up the wall does the ladder reach?

-------------------------------------------------------

David say: Reach of ladder: 20*sin(62) = 17.66 feet rounded to the nearest hundredth
-
Como say: 20 sin 62° ft = 17 • 66 ft
-
electron1 say: The length of the ladder is the length of the hypotenuse of the right triangle. The distance up the wall is the height of the right triangle.

Sin θ = Height ÷ Hypotenuse
Sin 62˚ = h ÷ 20
h = 20 * sin 62

This is approximately 17.66 feet. I hope this is helpful for you.

ted s say: if you would study your trig YOU would know that sin 62° = H / 20...find H
-
say: Which is why I am ******* answering questions.
