Dino the dinosaur was walking along one day when suddenly she looked up 20° to see a meteor headed right for her!

115 ft.

She knows that she is 15 ft. tall, and it looks like the meteor is 115 ft. in the air.

15 ft.

Dino decides to quickly figure out how far away the meteor is from landing.

sin(20) =

x =

sin(20)

100 ft.

x = 292.38

20°

15 ft.

292.38 ft away from landing

Since the meteor is only 292.38 ft. away from landing Dino decides she has enough time for a last meal.

Dino looks down 32° and sees a small tree which looks about 10 ft. away and has Dino’s favorite types of leaves to eat.

Leaves!

10 ft.

32°

Dino decides to quickly calculate if she is tall enough to reach the tree by just bending over and not having to move.

cos(32) =

x = 11.79

Would have to lean over 11.79 ft.

Dino is tall enough to lean over to reach the tree and eat one last meal!

Dino leans over and prepares to eat the leaves when suddenly...
