a ski slope on a mountian has an angle of elevation of 25.2 degrees. the vertical height of the slope is 1808 feet. how long is the slope?

anonymous just gave you the answer.

Your error was to divide sin25.2 by 1808,
should have been 1808/sin25.2
(cross-multiply the equation and you won't make that mistake)
to get 4246 feet

thanks so much!
