Help fast please!!!!!!!!! The picture shows a water slide. What is the height, AB, of the water slide? Answer 8 feet 11.31 feet 13.86 feet 16 feet

Uhm..this is kind of hard to answer without the rest of the information about the picture. I'm assuming it is a triangle with the two number lengths on it already. So you would have to do a reverse Pythagorean theorem on it.

Angle a is 60 and the hypotenuse is 16 and angle b is 90

So do you know how to do Cos/Sin/Tan operations?

Yes sin = o/h cos= a/h tan= o/a

if I remembered them entirely from my sophomore year I would help you work it out, but You would need to use Sin to find the height. First you will have to use Cos to get the base though.

So x/16=60

Did you catch that last post by another person?

No its gone

Okay Angle C = 30.

Yes i that its a 30 60 90 triangle

Okay now I got it :) Cos = 60 also known as .5, .5 = h/16. Multiply both sides by 16 to get the answer of 8 feet, so the answer is A.

Ok thanks
