# A fire ranger stands atop an observation tower 70 feet above the ground and sees a fire in the distance. She measures the angle of depression from where she is to the fire and finds it to be 34° How far away from the base of the tower is the fire?​

Step-by-step explanation:

We can form a right triangle where the distance between the ranger's current position and fire is the hypotenuse of the triangle. In a right triangle, the tangent of an angle is equal to its opposite side divided by the hypotenuse.

Therefore, we have:

, where is the distance between the base of the tower and the fire.

Solving, we get:

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!! I NEED IT The angle of elevation from a point on the ground to the top of a tower is 18°. The base of the tower is 100 feet from the point on the ground. Find the height of the tower. Round to the nearest tenth of a foot.

32.5 feet

Step-by-step explanation:

This situation forms a right triangle. We are given the distance from the base of the tower (long leg of the triangle) and are asked to find the height (short leg of the triangle).

With this information, we can use the tan ratio, opposite over adjacent, to find the height of the tower.

tan 18 =

Multiply each side by 100:

(100) tan 18 = x

Simplify and round to the nearest tenth:

32.49 = x

32.5 = x

So, the height of the tower is approximately 32.5 feet

An investor buys Rs.1200 worth of share in company first 5 monnths he bought the share at price of Rs.10,12,15,20 and 24 per share. After 5 months what is the average price paid for the share by him. ​

14.6

Step-by-step explanation:

The computation of average price paid for the share is shown below:-

=

= 14.6

For more clarification please find the attachment as attached using excel spreadsheet.

By dividing the total investment by the total number of shares we can get the average price paid for the share and the same is to be considered

George Mendel is examining peas to try to understand how traits are passed from parents to offspring. Today Gregor has 228 peas to examine . The pods have 6 peas per pod. How many pods of peas are there?

The answer is 38 peas per pod

228÷6 = 38

By dividing the total number of peas (228) by the number of peas per pod (6), we find that Gregor Mendel has 38 pods of peas.

### Explanation:

This question is asking how many pods of peas Gregor Mendel has if he has a total of 228 peas and each pod contains 6 peas. To find out this, you can divide the total number of peas by the number of peas per pod.

So, 228 peas ÷ 6 peas/pod = 38 pods.

Therefore, Gregor Mendel has 38 pods of peas that he is examining for his research.
