Homework Help: McCalculus

Posted by Mathlovin' on Monday, June 30, 2008 at 5:09pm.

I am confused: Two math students erect a sun shade on the beach. The shade is 1.5 m tall, 2 m wide, and makes an angle of 60į with the ground. What is the area of shade that the students have to sit in at 12 noon (that is, what is the projection of the shade onto the ground)? (Assume the sunís rays are shining directly down)
