A ladder leaning against a building makes an angle of 78 degrees with the ground. THe foot of the ladder is 5 feet from the building. How long is the ladder?
Yadda yadda. Okay, a picture came with it, but I already figured out the problem and here is it:
cos(78) = 5/x
.......... = ...???
How do I get x by itself? Could someone please work the problem for me, and then I'll know how to do the rest. Isn't it annoying when you forget the little things? Thanks!
Lol, good to know. Okay, so I key in 5/cos(78), just like you said the first time , and I get 24.048. Would that be the correct answer?
Ever have one of those weeks where you can literally hear your brain frying through your ears? It's a crisp, bancon-like sizzling sound. Not pleasant. But seriously, thanks for putting up with me lol. *continues digging gigantic hole with which to bury homework*
