  1. As usual, draw a figure.

    You have the hypotenuse, and the angle.

    h/800 = sin 15ยบ = .2588
    h = 207m

    A straight road up a hill has a slope of 1/4. From the bottom of the hil to the top of the hill, the horizontal change is 80 m. Determine the height of the hill. I'm thinking that it's 80/4 = 20 m.. but I'm not 100% sure.
