sailboat moving parallel to the dock. When the boat is equidistant between

both girls, the angle of elevation to the top of its 8.0 m mast is for both

observers. Describe how you would calculate the angle, to the nearest degree,between Tara and the boat as viewed from Brit’s position. Justify your reasoning with calculations.

**Henry**, Sunday, May 8, 2011 at 2:33pmDraw a hor. line and label it ABC with

B being the mid-point of the line. Draw

a ver line to point B and label the top

of the ver line point D. Draw a line from A to D and from C to D. We have

formed 2 congruent rt triangles with a

common ver side.

AB = BC = 13.75/2 = 6.75m.

BD = 8m.

tanA = BD/AB = 8/6.75 = 1.1852,

A = 50 Deg. = Angle of elevation.

**Anonymous**, Sunday, May 8, 2011 at 3:59pmi meant i think we have to draw a 3D image of the triangle

the way you told me, i tried to do it and got a two congruent trianlges makin a 90 degrees angle
