sin=35 x/4.1

x=4.1 sin=35

not sure how to do this

**Reiny**, Saturday, February 18, 2012 at 9:20pmyour statement of sin=35 x/4.1 makes no sense,

it simply says that 35 x/4.1 is a sin.

did you mean to say ....

let the height be x m

then

sin 35° = x/4.1

x = 4.1(sin 35°) = appr 2.35m

**Brandon**, Sunday, February 19, 2012 at 10:36am4.1 is opposite the right angle and 35 degrees is on the longer leg and x is on the shorter leg. Does that seem to help? So is this still the same way to work the problem out? Thanks so much for your help!!
