No, it's 29 degrees and 38 minutes. A minute is 1/60 of a degree.
So i was trying to solve a problem as listed as below.
From a boat on the lake, the angle of elevation to the top of a cliff is 29°38ʹ. If the base of the cliff is
655 feet from the boat, how high is the cliff (to the nearest foot)?
I am unsure how to approach this problem because i dont get what 29°38ʹ is!
is it trying to tell me that it is 29 degree and 38 ft??
Just get its value of 38 min from the tan table.
so tan(29 degree and 38 min)=P/655
In this question we can easily find out the value of tan29 but got 38 we have to check its value from table
