    flight of angle

    I took off from an airport at an angle of 18 (nearest degree). At a horizontal distance of 1000m (3sf) away from where he takes off there is a range of hills 300m (nearest 10m) high. If I maintain an angle of 18 show weather I will clear the range.

    Could be wrong but...

    I believe u take sin(18) * 1000 and u get like 309, so... 309 > 300 so yes it will make it
