A bullet is shot at the top of a cliff to towards a target at the other end of the line of sight, roughly 250 yards away. The target is on a steep incline of 45 degrees above the horizontal. If the scope is aimed directly at the target, will the bullet (a) hit the target, (b) hit below the target, (c) hit above the target? The article discusses a high school level mathematical simulation of the problem using trigonometric functions.
