An 80-foot rope from the top of a tree house to the ground forms a 45∘ angle of elevation from the ground. How high is the top of the tree house? Round your answer to the nearest tenth of a foot.

To find the height, H, we can use :

 

sin (45°) =  H  / 80      rearrange as

 

H  =  80 *  sin (45°)   ≈  56.6  ft
