draw yourself a triangle, with a 90* angle at the root of the tree. The sides of the triangle are: The shadow(the base side), the tree (the vertical side) and the distance between the top of the tree and the top of the shadow of the tree (the diagonal side).Then either calculate the diagonal side and solve the puzzle with a sine or directly solve it with a cosine. (You need the angle between the diagonal and base sides)

The ratio of the lengths of the hypotenuse to the shortest side is 2, and the ratio of the lengths of the two sides adjacent to the right angle is the square root of 3.

Yes. Also, for finding any other root (cubic root, fourth root, etc.). The main square root of a complex number can be found easily if it is expressed in polar notation. For example: the square root of 5 at an angle of 46 degrees) the complex number that has the absolute value 5 and an angle of 46 degrees) is equal to the square root of 5, at an angle of 46/2 = 23 degrees.

No, the ratio of the volumes of two similar solid polyhedra is equal to the cube of the ratio between their edges. The volume of a solid object is proportional to the cube of its linear dimensions, not the square root.

A right angle is 90 degrees. The square root of a right angle would be the square root of 90, which is 9.486.

Trigonometry is really useful in life. If you want to be and engineer, architect, or builder, trig. is useful. If you say that a right triangle has an angle degree of 30 degrees, and the side opposite the angle is 10 ft, you can conclude that the hypotenuse is 20 ft. Trig. also states that any right triangle with a 45 degree angle has a ratio of .707106781184562. the ratio( sine) is 1 divided by the square root of 2, of the square root of 2 divided by to. Trust me, it's easier that it sounds

Lets say the short side (opposite the 30* angle) is X. the long side(opposite the 60* angle) is X times the square root of 3 and the hypotenuse is 2X. Yes that is an example of how to do the problem but the answer is. 1: Square root 3 2 Square root 3:6

A 30-60-90 right triangle is one in which the three angles of the triangle 30, 60 and 90 degrees. The length of the sides of such a triangle have the ratio 1:2:square root of 3. The 1 is opposite the 30 degree angle, the 2 is opposite the 60 degree angle and the square root of 3 is opposite the 90 degree angle.

(For televisions) Aspect ratio is the ratio of the width of the television screen to the height. TVs do not have taper ratios. (For airplanes) Aspect ratio is a ratio of the wing span squared to the wing's reference area. This gives you a sense of how thin/slender a wing will appear from the top view of the aircraft. High aspect ratio means a long/extended wing. b² / S ("b" is wing span, "S" is wing area) Taper ratio is the ratio of the wingtip's length to the wing root's length. This gives you a sense of the angle the shape of the wing. High taper ratio means a triangular shaped wing. t/r ("t" is length of the wingtip, "r" is length of wing's root)

It means angle.
