You can put this solution on YOUR website! What is the angle of elevation of the sun when a 35-ft mast casts a 20-ft shadow
The first thing you would do is make a triangle with the height as 35 ft and the bottom side as 20ft.
Let x= the angel of elevation
In order to find the angle of elevation, use the trigonometric ratio of tangent. tangent = opposite/adjacent
the equation will be:
tan x = 35/20
tan^-1(x) = 35/20
x = 60.2551187 degress
* I gave you the entire number including all the decimal places because you didn't specify whether or not you needed it rounded.
Hope I was of some help!
