A 100 foot tall antenna sits part way up a hill. The hill makes an angle to 12 degrees with the horizontal.In other words, if you were going to walk up the hill, you would walk at an angle of 12 degrees. To keep the antenna stable,it must be anchored by 2 cables.The distance from the base of the antenna running to the tie down point on the cable UP hill is 85 feet.From the base of the antenna to the down point DOWN hill is 95 feet.Ignore the amount of cable needed to fasten the cable to the antenna or to the tie downs. How much cable is needed?
