Richard is flying a kite. The kite string makes an angle of 57 degress with the ground. If Richard is standing 100 feet from the point on the ground direcly below the kite, find the length of the kite string..
Draw a rt triangle and label the hor
side 100ft. The hyp is the string.
hyp. = 100 / cos57 = 183.6ft.
