4-43.

Wet World has an 18-foot-long water slide. The angle of elevation of the slide (the angle it forms with a horizontal line) is

Imagine the slide as the hypotenuse of a right triangle. If you pretend, at first, that it's sitting on the ground,

the slide and the 'ground' form a 50° angle. Draw the diagram. Label all the parts you know. Add the 6' drop.

Where are you standing in the diagram?

Is the height of the slide the side opposite 50° or adjacent to 50°? Remember to add 6' to your answer.
