A kite is flying at a vertical height of 65 meters. It's string is attached to the ground at a 31 degree angle with the ground. How long is the string? Round to the nearest WHOLE NUMBER. (hint: draw a picture and find the hypotenuse)

Have you drawn the pic yet?

The angle that they have given you is not actually in the triangle.

 

Depending on which angle of the triangle that you use you will need to use either sin or cos to get the answer.
