A road is built up the slope of a hill with a height ofhmeters and an angle of inclination ofx. The length of the road isd.

a) Sketch a diagram of this situation. Label all quantities.

b) Show that the length of the road is represented by the relationd=hcscx.

c) Determine the length of a road that ascends a hill of height 100m at an angle of 0.3. Round your answer to the nearest tenth of a meter.

d) Sketch a graph ofd=hcscxfor a hill of height 100m and on the interval x ε [0, pi/4].

e) Interpret the meaning of the graph asxapproaches 0.

I'm really lost here, if anyone can point me in the right direction, or give me an idea on how to go about solving it I'd really appreciate it. Please just don't give me the answer, I really want to try and figure this out so when it comes to test time I know! ;)

Thanks in advance! This forum is a blessing as well as all the members on it who contribute so willingly!
