On the observation platform in the Statue of Liberty
John is approximately 244 feet above ground. He sights
a ship in the harbor and measures the angle of depression
as 18 degrees. (Hint- The angle of depression is the same as the angle of elevation.) Find the distance from the ship to the statue.
Round your answer to two decimal places.
Hint- Round your results for sin, cos, and tan to two decimal places when solving this problem. Example:
sin(35 ) = .5735 =.57
cos(35) = 8191 =.82
tan(35 )= .7002. =.70
