Which expression shows the height, in meters, of the sail? (6 points)

Select one:
a. 8 divided by cosec 35 degrees
b. 8 sin 35°
c. 8 sec 35°
d. 8 divided by sec 35 degrees

Answers

We know that in the right triangle cos 35=adjacent side angle 35/hypotenuse adjacent side angle 35-------------> h------>the height, of the sail  hypotenuse------> 8 m so cos 35=h/8------> h=8*cos 35 remember that sec x=1/cos x so cos 35=1/sec 35 substitute h=8*(1/sec 35)------> h=8/sec 35 the answer is the option d.)  8 divided by sec 35 degrees
