    Trigonometry Question Please help

    Okay i'm pretty sure the answer is found through Trigonometry. I've bought a package to prepare me for my Defense Force YouSession and i cannot understand how you would get the answer besides having a guess.. As you cannot use a calculator during the test i'm very confused how anyone could get the answer.. Unless i'm missing an easy formula for this, so if anyone could provide an explanation on this question i would greatly appreciate the help. Cheers Guys

    Re: Trigonometry Question Please help

    Recall the trig identities,
    sinα=opposite/hypotenuse
    cosα=adjacent/hypotenuse
    tanα=opposite/adjacent
    where α=the angle from the man to the flag pole.
    Plug n' chug to find the distance.
    Hope this helps!
