A giraffe is standing 22 feet from a naturalist hiding in the bush. The naturalist sights the animal and finds the angle of elevation is 30 degrees How tall is the giraffe?

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

height = 12.7 feet

Step-by-step explanation:

To find the height of the giraffe, we just need to use the tangent relation of the angle of elevation.

The opposite side to the angle is the height of the giraffe, and the adjacent side of the angle is the distance between the giraffe and the narutalist.

So, we have that:

tangent(30) = height / distance

0.5774 = height / 22

height = 22 * 0.5774 = 12.7 feet

What is the correct answer ? Please explain !

Answers

Answer:

The correct answer is B. 10x - 12y

Step-by-step explanation:

To find this, we focus on just the like terms. So we break it down by the variable each time.

5x + 5x = 10x

-6y + -6y = -12y

z + -z = 0

So we put those answers all together to get 10 - 12y + 0 or just 10x - 12y
