in a park some people are launching model rockets to find the maximum height,x,the rocket reaches, a person stands 50.0m from the launch sight and measure the angle from the ground to the rocket at its maximum height. if the angle is 36 then the maximum height,x, of rocket ism

Did you make a diagram?
Looks like a rightangled triangle to me, where the angle is 36ยบ, the adjacent is 50 and the opposite is h.
tan 36 = h/50
solve for h
