In math, we had to find out how tall the pole with the Canadian flag in front of the school is using trigonometry. First, we measured from the ground to my partners eyes. We measured 1.53m. We stepped 3m away from the flagpole. Then, we used the clinometer to measure the angle from my partners eyes to the top of the flagpole. this created an imaginary triangle like this. We measured 62 degrees.
Then we had to calculate it all using the equation x= 3 tan 62
This equals 5.64. Then we had to add the height from my partners eyes to the ground to 5.64. Our final answer was 7.17m.
