Im not sure where i went wrong with this question
Question: From the top of a cliff 112 m high, the angle of depression to a boat is 9°15′. How far is the boat from the foot of the cliff?
I tried doing this:
cos(9 degrees 15 minutes) = 112/x
x * cos(9 degrees 15 mins) = 112
x = 112/cos(9 degrees 15 mins)
and yet i get 113 m...
The answer is 600-something apparently, don't know where I'm going wrong. Please help!
