you are measuring the height of a water slide. you stand 58 meters from the base of the slide you measure the angle of elevation from the ground to the top of the water slide to be 13^0 . find the height h of the slide to the nearest meter

We can use the tangent for this


tan (13°)  =   H / 58     where H is  the slide height....  multiply both sides by  58


58 *  tan (13°)  =  H  ≈  13 m    (rounded)
