Homework Help: math

Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 6:21am.

Steve and Peggy want to rent a 40 foot by 25 foot tent for their backyard to host a barbecue. The base of the tent is supported 7 feet above the ground by poles and then roped stakes are used for support. The ropes make a 60 degree angle with the ground. How large a footprint in their yard would they need for this tent (and staked ropes)? In other words, what are the dimensions of the rectangle formed by the stakes on the ground?
