Question and answer
observer on a ship sights a mountin cliff at a 32-degree angle. The cliff is 1250 feet above sea level. How far is the ship from the shore.
Given that we're talking about 32 degree from the vertical. First, you assume that the cliff forms a 90 with the sea, so you'll get an opposite angle of 180-90-32=58. Using the sine rule: x / sin 32 = 1250 /sin 58, [ where x is the distance of the ship from shore. Therefore x = 1250 x sin 32 /sin 58 ]
