Toby the cat is stuck in a tree. Billys dad placed a ladder 5 ft from the base of the tree and then leaned the ladder against the tree. the top of the ladder is where toby is sitting. if the ladder makes a 65 degree angle with the ground, how far up the tree is the cat?

• trigonometry -

the leg opposite the 50 degree angle measures 8 meters. find the length of the hypotenuse

• physics -

8/sin50. Someone already posted this question
