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?

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...
