Expert Answer:

Answer : Given : a kite is flying at a hieght of 60m above the ground.the string attached to the kite is temporarily tied to a point on the ground.the inclination of the string with the ground is 60degree.
To find : the length of the string,assuming that there is no slack in the string.
 
Let x be the hieght of the kite above ground = 60 m 
And the angle marked be 60 degree.the lenght of the string be L. 
 
to find the lenght of the string 
=> 60 / L = sin60
=> L = 60 / sin60
=> L = 69.28 m Answer
