Reallife applications of trigonometry 
20110410 

From Angela: I am a teacher and I desire to show the students the reallife
application of trigonometry.
Of course, one application is to use a clinometer and find the heights of
various things. However, I am trying to provide a reallife scenario
which also answers the question "why" the height of the object needs
to be found. Not being an engineer, I do not know the specifics
examples, but I want my information to be accurate and my example to
to be as reallife as possible. I mean, I can say that someone wants to know the height of a flagpole;
however, I also want to answer the question "why" they want to know
this. I would like to give an actual reallife scenario. Do you know of some?
Thanks! Answered by Penny Nom.

From Tiffany: I was wondering if you have any reallife uses of the pythagorean theorem that you use in your everyday life. Answered by Penny Nom.
