Draw a diagram that represents each situation. Write and solve a trigonometric equation (or
ratio) using tangent. Approximate your answer to the nearest tenth unless otherwise stated.
13) A water slide makes an angle of 13° with the ground. The slide extends horizontally 58.2 meters.
Find the height of the slide.
14) The distance from a point P on the ground to a point R at the base of a cliff is 30 meters. The
measure of angle P is 72°. What is the height of the cliff?
15) You must order a new rope for the flagpole. To find out what length of rope is needed, you observe
that pole casts a shadow 11.6 meters long on the ground. The angle between the sun's rays and the
ground is 36.8°. How tall is the pole?
16) Lombard Street is on a hill in San Francisco, California, that rises 45 feet for every 100 feet of
horizontal distance. What angle does the hill make with a horizontal line? Round to the nearest
degree.
17) A hiker whose eyes are 5.5 feet above ground stands 25 feet from the base of a redwood tree. She
looks up at an angle of 71° to see the top of the tree. If the hiker is 5.5 feet tall, what is the height
of the tree?
18) A lifeguard is sitting on an observation chair at a pool. The lifeguard's eye level is 6.2 feet from the
ground. The base of the chair is 15.4 feet from a swimmer. Calculate the measure of the angle
formed when the lifeguard looks down at the swimmer.
