**Applications of Trigonometry Heights and Distances Chapter 9 Exercise 9.1 Question 5**

**5. **A kite is flying at a height of 60 m above the ground. The string attached to the kite is temporarily tied to a point on the ground. The inclination of the string with the ground is . Find the length of the string, assuming that there is no slack in the string.

**Solution:**

It is given that kite is flying at the height of 60 m. It means we have AB = 60 m

The string is tied to a point on the ground and we want to find length of string which is AC.

We have

m

Therefore, the length of string AC = m
