They have a right

triangle. The problem asks

"A company designs removable handicap access ramps as temporary measures for buildings to become compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The particular ramp shown in the figure must be placed at a 30 degree

angle. Eight feet from the bottom step about how long in inches is the ramp?

Sorry I don't have a picture, but I must add... after the bottom step, it extends 20" more, so the bottom of the ramp is 116, (8 feet = 96 inches + 20 = 116 inches).

But I think they're asking for the top of the ramp. It is obviously taller because it's the hypotenuse but I can't tell because I don't have the other side to do Pythagorean theorem.

I tried to do 116 / Sin60 = x/ sin90 but I ended up getting a negative number and got confused.

Help please.
