I'm going to assume the question means "the ladder makes a ___ angle with the wall."

In this case, we can draw a diagram. What we get is a right triangle with one leg as 8 and the hypotenuse as 16. This is a 30-60-90 triangle (because the leg is half the hypotenuse)! They want the angle the ladder makes with the wall, so the angle between hypotenuse and leg, which is **60 degrees.**

You are very welcome!
