Hey guys. It's been forever!

Here's a trig problem for you from my homework. I'm honeslty a little burnt out from a big trig. review so I thought I'd post this and by the time I come back to it answered I'll be able to think more clearly!

 

Any help would be much appreciated!

 

Sorry it's a little blurry

Hey, ND.....good to see you!!!

 

Here's my take on this one......

 

If the Celestial North Pole traces out a complete orbit every 26,000 years, it must move through 360°  during that time....so.....in one year it must move:

 

(1/26000) * 360°   =  (9/650)°  = about  0.01384615° =

 

about    0.8307 ' 50"  [roughly]

 

 

cool cool cool
