Homework Help: Math Analysis

Posted by Emily on Tuesday, March 2, 2010 at 10:22pm.

From a ship off-shore, the angle of elevation of a hill is 1.1. After the ship moves inland at 4.5 knots for 20 min, the angle of elevation is 1.4. How high is the hill? (1 knot = 1 nautical mile = 6080 ft per hour)


As I was just about to get the answer, I realized that it was gonna be negative, which is definitely not correct. I apologize that I can't include a picture to clarify the problem a bit. Could someone maybe please explain how to get the answer? Any help is greatly appreciated! :)
