asked • 12/16/19# Please help me I really need to figure this question out.

An 18-foot ribbon is attached to the top of a pole and is located on the ground 10 feet away from the base of the pole. Suppose Mateo has a second ribbon that will be located an additional 23 feet away past that point

a) Sketch the situationLabel the the angle that Mateo's ribbon forms with the ground as and use variables for any sides needed to find the length of Mateo's ribbon.

b ) Showing all work , find the measure of the angle formed by Mateo's ribbon and the ground . Round the angle to the nearest tenth of a degree

c) Showing all work, use sine to find the length of Mateo's ribbon. Round to the nearest hundredths of a foot

## 1 Expert Answer

The height of the pole is sqrt(224).

Therefore, M's ribbon is sqrt(224+1089).

The angle of M's ribbon is arctan (sqrt(224)/33); call this angle θ

sin θ = sqrt(224)/M

You can do the arithmetic!
