Once again, this is a basic trigonometry relationship problem. 

 

In this case, we can use tangent or cotangent. 

 

Tangent is opposite over adjacent

Cotangent is adjacent over opposite.

 

Let’s just say we use tangent.

 

\(\tan{x}=\frac{26}{53}\)

 

I hope this helped,

We know  the oppoite side and the adjacent side....the inverse tangent is what we need

 

arctan ( 26/53)  = 26.1°
