A 125-ft tower is located on the side of a mountain that is inclined 32(degrees) to the horizontal. A guy wire is to be attached to the top of the tower and anchored at a point 55; ft downhill from the base of the tower. Find the shortest length of the wire needed.
I plug some things into the law of cosines and I get to
3025 = 15625b^2 - 250b*cos(58)
For the love of god help, this is due tomorrow -_-
