If you draw a right triangle to represent the slope, the slope would be the hypotenuse, and the height of the hill is the side opposite the angle 25.2 degrees (with the horizontal).
So by the definition of sin(θ), we get
sin(θ) = opposite / hypotenuse
where θ=25.2 degrees,
opposite = 1808 feet
Can you take it from here?
