The angle starts 50 ft out from the base and the angle of the rope to the top is 65 degrees how high is the building .. show me the math

Sine (theta) = height / 50 ft

Sine (65 degree) = height / 50 ft

Now

height = 50 * Sine (65 degree)

height = 50 * 0.9063

Height = 45.315 ft

Hence the height of the building is 45.315 ft.
