**Answer: 58 feet**</h3>

====================================================

Check out the diagram below.

We have a right triangle such that the vertical leg is unknown. We'll call it x. This is opposite the reference angle 46°

The hypotenuse is the length of the string, which is 80 ft.

We use the sine ratio to tie the opposite and hypotenuse together.

sin(angle) = opposite/hypotenuse

sin(46) = x/80

80*sin(46) = x

x = 80*sin(46)

x = 57.54718 approximately

x = **58 feet**

The kite is **58 feet **off the ground.

For comparison, a 6 story building is 6*10 = 60 ft tall, assuming each story is 10 ft tall. So this kite is about 2 feet short of the top of the building.

Edit: I changed 56 to 58
