Hi, I have one more question from my practice test sheet. I know for this type of problem the tangent function should be used. I'm a little confused how the tangent function works however so if someone could show me how to do this problem that would be great.
Problem:
Tom’s lovable cat Fluffy has been out terrorizing mourning doves in the back yard. Now that she is finished, she is heading for the house. When she is 41.6 feet from the house she notices that Mildred, a neighbor who loves birds but hates cats, is headed her way to scold her for her behavior. The angle between Fluffy and the house and the line from Fluffy to Mildred is 22.7◦ degrees. How far from Mildred is Fluffy at this point?
