Juwan stood 14 feet away from a spot directly underneath a bird's nest and looked up at the nest with an angle of elevation of 36°. Juwan's eyes were 5 feet from the ground. Enter the height of the bird's nest above the ground, rounded to the nearest foot.

tan 36 = opp /adj        opp is the height   and    adj is  14 ft

 

Height of bird nest  

 

tan 36 = height / 14

14 tan 36 = height       but this is height above Juans eyes....so we must add 5 ft to get to the true height above the ground

 

14 tan 36     +5     = height
