Homework Help: Trigonometry

Posted by Kyonia' on Tuesday, April 17, 2007 at 6:34pm.

The Statue of Liberty is approximatly 91.5 meters tall from the base of the pedestal to the tip of the torch. If a theodolite were placed 100 meters from the base of the pedestal, about how far would the theodolite be from the top of the torch?

Sounds like you have a right triangle. The base and height are given; all you need is the hypotenuse.
