Richard is flying a kite. The kite string makes an angle 57 with the ground. If Richard is standing 100 feet from the point on the ground directly below the kite, find the length of the kite string.

  • Geometry -

    cos(theta) = adj/hyp
    100 feet is the hyp. theta is 57.
    cos(57) = 100/x
    x=183.71 feet
