## Right-Triangle Word Problems

What is a right-triangle word problem.

## MathHelp.com

For the base, I'll use the cosine ratio:

ladder top height: about 5.20 m

As usual, I'll start with a picture, using "alpha" to stand for the base angle:

m(α) = sin −1 (4/5) = 53.13010235...

(Remember that m(α) means "the measure of the angle α".)

92919800×tan(17/60°) = b = 459501.4065...

1.3 × 110 = 143 1.5 × 110 = 165

Now that I have the lengths of the two legs, I can set up a triangle:

I can find the distance between the starting and ending points by using the Pythagorean Theorem :

143 2 + 165 2 = c 2 20449 + 27225 = c 2 47674 = c 2 c = 218.3437657...

tan −1 (165/143) = θ = 49.08561678...

## Real Life Applications Of Right Angle Triangle

## How right triangles are used in real-life?

- Shadow cast by a tall object: A tree forms right angle to the land. Its top and the open end of the shadow form the hypotenuse allowing you to visualize the right triangle structure.
- A climbing ladder leaning to the wall: A slanting ladder to the wall forms right triangle shape where hypotenuse corresponds to the ladder.
- Angles for placing a slab: Wall mounted shelves are placed on right triangular holding points.
- A person standing at a tower and locating a ball on the land : The gaze of a person standing on the tower forms the hypotenuse of the right triangle shape whose two vertical and horizontal arms are height of the tower and distance between the tower and ball.

## Solving right triangle and its application in various professions

## 1. Carpentry

## 2. Finding height or length

## 3. Navigation

## 4. Surveying

## 5. Astronomy

## 6. Astronauts and space scientists

## Teaching right triangles the activity way

A few activities that involve solving right triangles’ variables are:

## 1. Estimating heights of objects using Lego Robot kit

## 2. Estimating boundaries of a plot

## 3. Parallax activity to guess the distance between stars and sun
