Finding angle and length of a post out of alignment using Geometry.

A 5 foot post is supposed to be vertical, but it is 4 inches out of alignment at the top.

A-What is the angle of lean, round to the nearest tenth of a degree?

B-How high does it reach, round to the nearest hundredth of an inch?

The best first step with word problems is to draw a picture so that you can visualize the problem. I have attached a picture.

Figure 1: What the pole (blue line) should look like if it was not leaning.

Figure 2: An exaggerated version of what the pole looks like when it is 4 inches out of alignment with the vertical (black dotted line). There are two things that should be noted. One: the pole is still 5 ft in length because nothing has happened in order for the pole to change length. Two: The triangle created is in fact a right triangle.

Important: Before proceeding to the calculations, it is important to use the same units for length. You can either use inches or feet, but not ...

Solution Summary

A step-by-step explanation of how to find the angle of lean and height of the post when it is out of alignment with the vertical. A picture is included to help visualize the problem.

1- If we have a triangle ABC, then prove that the internal and external bisectors of the angle of a triangle are perpendicular (assume for angle A)
2- Prove that given triangle ABC with the altitude from B of the same length as the altitude from C, then the triangle must be isosceles.

The circumscribed circle is the circle passing through the three vertices of a triangle ABC. Assume the following results from geometry. The perpendicular bisectors of the sides of a triangle meet in a point O that is the center of the circumscribed circle.
a) According to a theorem from geometry, the measure of the angle
