Shane is 61 feet high on a ride at an amusement park. The ANGLE OF DEPRESSION to the park entrance is 42 degrees and the ANGLE OF DEPRESSION to hus friends standing below is 80 degrees. How far from the entrance are his friends standing? Round to the nearest foot. Please help. :(

Distance to entrance

61 tan 48

Distance to friends

61 tan 10

Diference = friends to entrance distance

61 tan 48 - 61 tan 10 = 61 (tan 48 - tan 10) = 56.99 =~ 57 ft
