Enter your answer as a decimal to the nearest tenth in the box.




I'm stuck on this question. I believe it's 42.7 but I'm not sure, correct me if I am wrong. Please include how you found the answer, thank you!

Note that we  have an adjacent side to the 31°  angle...and we are looking for the opposite side


So...the tangent seems the natural choice, here....so...


tan (31°)  = x  / 22         multiply both sides by 22


22 *  tan (31°)  =  ≈  13.2  ft
