Creating wheelchair ramp using right angle triangle trigonomotry

A wheelchair accessibility ramp for a business needs to be built. Using right-triangle trigonometry, help advise him how to create a ramp whose dimensions will meet the specification needed that will allow wheelchair accessibility. Talk about the procedure the contractor will need to follow to find the dimensions of the three si

Trigonometry function

The questions are in the attachment 1. The tide in a local coastal community can be modelled using a sine function. Starting at noon, the tide is at its "average" height of 3 metres measured on a pole located off of the shore. 5 hours later is high tide with the tide at a height of 5 metres measured at the same pole. 15

Trigonometry - Period and Amplitude

The model for the height of a tidal wave for a 24 hour period is given by H(t) = 1.25 + 0.85 cos 0.498(t - 1) where H(t) is the height of the tide in meters at a time t measured in hours from midnight. (a) What is the period of the wave? (b) What is the greatest height of the wave? (c) At what time will high tide first occur?

Pythagorean Theorem Proofs

There are more than 50 ways to prove the Pythagorean theorem. Using the Library, web resources, and other course materials, choose a proof of the theorem that you understand and describe it to the class. Then create a real-world application problem that can be solved by using the Pythagorean theorem. Make sure to include the que

Researchers at the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise

Researchers at the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, Idaho coordinate many of the firefighting efforts necessary to battle wildfires in the western United States. In an effort to dispatch firefighters for containment, scientists and meteorologists attempt to forecast the direction of the fires. Some of this data can be

Pythagorean Theorem : Point of Tangency

Radio and TV stations broadcast from high towers. Their signals are picked up by radios and TVs in homes within a certain radius. Because Earth is spherical, these signals don't get picked up beyond the point of tangency which could be calculated using the Pythagorean Theorem" Question: Can you describe how you would calculat
