**helper**, Wednesday, February 2, 2011 at 1:25pmYou need to draw right triangle ABC.

Angle A (vertex angle) = 3 deg

side b (base) = 60 mi

side c = hypotenuse

side a (distance of climb) = unknown

tan A = op/hyp = a/b = a/60

tan 3 = a/60

0.0524 = a/60

60(0.0524) = a

3.144 mi = a

So the plane climbed 3.144 miles

To find how far above sea level after the climb,

1 mile + 3.144 miles = 4.144 miles above sea level
