A ski resort is installing tows on its new ski runs. The baby hill has a vertical height of 500.0 m and is inclined at 42o. Determine the appropriate length of the T-bar cable if it goes to the top of the hill and returns.

    Make a sketch and you will see that

    sin 42° = 500/length of hill
    length of hill = 500/sin42°

    continue from there
