A hockey player skates down the ice at an angle of 34° to a line crossing the width of the rink. If he skates 14 m, how far has he travelled down the length of the ice toward the goal?
your use of the words "down" is confusing.
I think you mean the skate is skating at an angle 34deg to the width dimension, and you want to know the distance perpendicular to the width.
14 *sin34= distance If I understood you correctly.
