Solar panels are used to convert energy from the sun into electricity. To get the best result, the panel

has to be perpendicular to the sun's rays; in other words, angle è has to be a right angle. What should the height, h, be if è is a right angle, a solar panel is 12 ft long, and the sun's angle of elevation is 38°?

A. 9.4 ft

B. 9.5 ft

C. 15.4 ft

D. 7.4 ft

Which of the following pairs of angles are coterminal?

a^2 + b^2 = c^2.

(20)^2 + (5x-10)^2 = (2x*sqrt5)^2

400 + 25x^2 - 100x + 100 = 20x^2

25x^2 - 100x + 500 = 20x^2

Divide both sides by 5:

5x^2 - 20x + 100 = 4x^2

5x^2 - 4x^2 - 20x + 100 = 0.

x^2 - 20x +100 = 0

(x-10)(x-10) = 0.

x - 10 = 0

X = 10.

2. We form a rt triangle:

X = Hor side.

Y = Ver side or dist. from base.

Z = Hyp. = pi*D = 3.14*5 = 15.7 Ft.

Y = Z*sin15 = 15.7*sin15 = 4.07 Ft.

4. 390 Deg.

750 - 360 = 390 Deg.

Answer: C.
