Given that the height of the building is 8 yard and the distance between Jonathan and the building is 10 yards.
The sun is at the top of the building, let the distance between Jonathan laying on the ground and the top of the building be x. Using Pythagoras:
x² = 10² + 8²
x² = 100 + 64
x² = 164
x = √164 = 12.86 yards
For a triangle with sides a, b, c and their respective opposite angles A, B, and C. The sine rule is given as:
Let the angle that the sunlight hit the ground be y°. The andle between the building and the ground is 90°. Therefore using sine rule:
at the 90 degree angle... i think
answer: good job it's all correct !
