A 1.5-m rake rests against the side of a garden shed. The angle the handle of the rake forms with the ground is 71 °. How far up the wall of the shed does the tool reach, to the nearest tenth of a metre? Include a diagram.

Right triangle

sin 71o   = opposite/ hypotenuse =   height/1.5m

1.5 m * sin 71o = 1.42 m
