Describe how right triangle trigonometry can be used to determine the distance the 550 workers had to drag a stone in order to raise it to a height of 30 feet. Does anyone know how to convert this 9Â° to a measurement of length or at least tell me what this formula is and how it works? I understand that it must be based on the Pythagoren Theorem which involves the use of right triangle trigonometry.
