A student lets out 30 meter of string on a kite from a hand height of 1 meter. The angle between horizontal hand height and the kite is 25º. Find the height of the kite above the ground, to the nearest meter.

30 m is the hypotenuse of a right triangle

sin = opposite leg / hypotenuse 

sin 25 = height / 30 

30 sin 25 = 12. 67 m    but you have to add the one meter hand height for a total  = ~ 14 m
