Ex. 2
 A support cable from a radio tower makes an
angle of 56 degrees with the ground. If the
cable is 250 ft. long, how far above the
ground does it meet the tower?
Ex. 5
 You are standing at the end of the shadow of
a giant sequoia, 150 ft from its base. The
angle of elevation to the sun is 63 degrees.
