## Sagot :

Next it says that it traveled 40km 30 degrees from vertical, so we set up a sin equation to solve for the missing side, n:

sin(angle)= opposite/hypotenuse:

sin(30) = n/40

40sin30=n

n=20km

Then it says at an angle of 45 degrees, it goes 100km. This means that we are given the hypotenuse of a right triangle, and we need to find the side that goes up and down. We shall call this length x.

We know that the angle opposite x is 45 degrees.

So, we will use sin to solve for x:

sin(angle)= opposite/hypotenuse

sin45= x/100

100sin45=x

x=70.711km

But remember, I said not to forget about that 30km from the very beginning? So we add up all of our vertical heights:

30km + 20km+ 70.711km =

**120.711km**
