Find the angle that the ramp makes with the ground?Answer by scott8148(6628)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!the sine of the angle is the height of the platform divided by the length of the ramp let x=angle __ sin(x)=(10/3)/(35/2) __ sin(x)=4/21 use a calculator (or a table) to find x
