A flagpole casts a 100-foot shadow with an angle of elevation of 28 degrees. How tall is the flagpole?

Use tangent to solve. Opposite= flagpole Adjacent= shadow= 100 ft Θ= 28 degrees tanΘ=opposite/adjacent tan(28)=flagpole/100ft 100*tan(28)=flagpole flagpole= 53.17 ft

### Subject: Pre-Algebra

Ella has a rectangular garden that is 20 feet longer than it is wide. A: What would be the equation that represents the length if the width is x? B: What would the algebraic equation for the perimeter be?

A: if the width is equal to x, and the length is 20 feet longer than the width, then the length is (x+20). B. The equation for the perimeter of a rectangle is 2l+2w=P. If l=x+20, then 2(x+20)+2(x)=P. This can be simplified: 1. Distribute: 2x+40+2x=P 2. Add like terms: 4x+40=P
