Q:
# A road has an incline of 10°. To the nearest foot, find the increase in altitude of a car after driving 4,000 feet along the road. A) 695 ft B) 705 ft C) 3,939 ft D) 4,062 ft

Accepted Solution

A:

A.

You can get this by creating a right triangle with a opposite side of x and the hypotenuse of 4000. Then find the altitude using Sin(10) = x/4000. Solve for x.
