Watch the video on Simple Interest and do the attached sheet.  I have included the solutions.


Watch the video on using trig to solve word problems.  There are two new concepts included:  Angle of elevation and angle of depression.


Here is one answer from each page so you can see if you are doing ok.

Page 1, Question 3 - 14.3m; Page 2, Question 4 - 22.0m and Page 3, Question 9 - 20.9m  ** For Question 9, you have to find the height of the tree from the man's eye level then add on this height to this point to get the total height of the tree.
