The sail of a boat is in the shape of a right triangle.
The sail of a boat is a right triangle with an acute angle equal to 35 degrees and the side of the sail which is the hypotenuse to the right triangle is 8 meters long.
Which expression shows the height, in meters, of the sail?
a. cosine of 35 degrees divided by 8
b. 8 (tangent of 35 degrees)
c. tangent of 35 degrees divided by 8
d. 8 (cosine of 35 degrees )
The figure below shows a right triangle.
opposite side = p units
hypotenuse side = q units
adjacent side = r units
y and x are the two acute angles
What is p divided by r equal to?
a. tan x degrees
b. tan y degrees
c. sin y degrees
d. cos x degrees
I think it is tan x degrees but not sure. (a.)
The picture below shows a right triangle shaped charging stand for a gaming system;
The side face of a charging stand is a right triangle labeled ABC. The measure of angle ACB is 90 degrees and the measure of angle ABC is 50 degrees. Side B C measures 3 inches.
Which expression shows the height, AC, of the charging stand?
a. 3 divided by cos 50 degrees
b. 3 ( tan 50°)
c. 3 divided by tan 50 degrees
d. 3 (cos 50°)
I think the answer is b.
Jim is designing a seesaw for a children's park. The seesaw should make an angle of 45 degrees with the ground , and the maximum height to which it should rise is 1 meter. What is the maximum length of the seesaw?

b. 1.4 meters
c. 2 meters
d. 0.5 meters
I think the answer is b. 1.4
Kayson is looking at two buildings, building A and building B, at an angle of elevation of 73°. Building A is 30 feet away, and building B is 35 feet away. Which building is taller and by approximately how many feet?
a. Building A; it is around 16.35 feet taller than building B
b. Building A; it is around 114.48 feet taller than building B
c. Building B; it is around 16.35 feet taller than building A
d. Building B; it is around 114.48 feet taller than building A
I think the answer is C.
Charlie is watching hot air balloons. Balloon A has risen at a 50° angle. Balloon B has risen at a 78° angle. If the distance from balloon A to the ground is 1,000 feet, how far is balloon B from balloon A? Round your answer to the nearest whole number.
A. 999 feet
B. 1,005 feet
C. 1,052 feet
D. 1,102 feet
I think the answer is C, 1,052.
