Martha is standing 90 feet away from a tree and is flying a kite, which gets caught in the top of a tree. She is holding the string so that it makes a 44° angle of elevation with the ground. Estimate the length of the string to the nearest whole foot.

The height is the opposite leg of the right traingle angle 44

the 90 ft is the adjacent leg

tan 44 = opp / adj

tan 44 = height/90

90 tan 44 = height of the kite
