A playground is rectangular in shape. The longer side of the playground is 400 feet. A walkway runs diagonally through the playground. The angle formed by the walkway and the shorter side of the playground is 53°.
What is the perimeter of the playground?
Enter your answer, rounded to the nearest foot, in the box.
We need to find the shorter side....draw a picture ...you will see that
TAN53 = OPP/ADJ = 400/(shortside)
solve for shortside = 301.4 ft
Perimeter = 2 x shortside + 2 x longside
2 x 301.4 + 2 x 400 ==========> I think you can do this...
