Slide1Section 2 – Right Triangle TrigonometryWord Problems

Slide2a surveyor is standing 50 feet from the base of a large tree.  Thesurveyor measures the angle of elevation to the top of the tree as          .  How tall is the tree? 50 X

Slide3a 40-foot flagpole casts a 30 foot shadow.  find the angle ofelevation of the sun. 40 30

Slide4from a point 50 feet away from the entrance to lincoln-Way East,Yugo measured the angle of elevation to the top of the building to be        .  How tall is the building? 50 X

Slide5pat wanted to measure the height of the flagpole at Lincoln-WayEast.  From a point, he measured the angle of elevation of the flagpole to be        .  He then moved back 15 feet and found the angle of elevation from there to be      .  How tall is the flagpole? 15 X y
