 Question 630267: The science club wants to find out the height of the school's flagpole. They found that if the rope attatched to the top of the pole was lengthened, it formed an angle of 60 degrees with the ground, 14ft. from the base of the pole. What is the height of the pole?Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15746)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!if the rope attached to the top of the pole was lengthened, it formed an angle of 60 degrees with the ground, 14ft. from the base of the pole. What is the height of the pole? : We can use the tangent of 60 degrees where: side opposite = height of the pole side adjacent = 14 ft : tan(60) = h = 14 * 1.732 h = 24.25 ft is the height of the pole
