the international rules of basketball state that the rim of the net should be 3.05 meters above the ground. if jane's line of sight to the rim is 34 degrees and jane is 1.7 meters tall, what is the approximate horizontal distance from her to the rim? round your distance to the nearest tenth.

tan 34   =    opp / adj = height / distance to goal

tan34 = (3.05-1.7) / d

d = 2  meters
