Homework Help: Precalculus

Posted by Ms. Suzie on Monday, March 2, 2009 at 1:29pm.

A swimming pool is 3 feet deep in the shallow end. The bottom of the pool has a steady downward drop of 12 degrees toward the deep end. If the pool is 50 feet long, how deep is the deep end.

So I said that first you would subtract three from 50, of course giving you 47, then, I said
tan12 = x/47
tan12 * 47 = x
x = about 10 feet
is this right
