A 24 foot ladder forms a 76 degree angle with the ground. The top of the ladder rests against the building. To the nearest inch how high up the building does the ladder reach?

  • geometry -

    if the ladder reaches height h,

    h/24 = sin 76°
    h = 24*.97 = 23.28' = 23'3"

  • geometry -

    to nearest degree, what is angle M
