1. Length of the rope is 20 m and angle made by the rope with the ground level is 30°.

Given: AC = 20 m and angle C = 30°

To Find: Height of the pole

Let AB be the vertical pole

In right ΔABC, using sine formula

sin 30° = AB/AC

Using value of sin 30 degrees is ½, we have

1/2 = AB/20

AB = 20/2

AB = 10

Therefore, the height of the pole is 10 m.
