More:

In a right triangle, a series of perpendicular line segments are drawn starting with an altitude using the vertex of the right angle in the triangle. Then subsequently continuing to draw altitudes from the right angles in the new right triangles created and which always include the vertex from the smallest angle in the original right triangle. The series of altitudes are drawn so they move closer and closer to the smallest angle in the original right triangle. Find the sum of all these perpendicular line segments if one of the angles of the triangle is 55 degrees and the side of the triangle adjacent to the this angle is 13.1 meters long.
