Problem 531


A ladder is leaning up against a 10-foot wall at an angle of elevation of 65°. How far is the foot of the ladder from the wall? Round your answer to the nearest tenth of a foot.





Use the trigonometric ratios and SOH-CAH-TOA to solve for the missing side length.


So the distance from ladder from the wall = 4.7 feet
