Civil Engineers typically possess and academic degree with a major in Civil Engineering.

The Eiffel tower has began rusting and the top section has to be replaced. A scale model as been constructed to plan the project. The length of 'X' and 'Y' need to be solved to began actually construction and finish the planning stage. Round the final answer to the nearest tenth. Trigonometry is used in the building plans. It is
used in calculating dimensions, such as height
and width, and angles. Trigonometry is used in
building scale models and the actual building, or
roads, bridges, etc. Trigonometry can also be used
in determining the structural integrity of a
structure. Problem: 11 Cm 55° 35° X Y
