The angle of depression from a helicopter to a landing pad is 37 degrees. if the helicopter is 1250 feet from the ground. what is the horizontal distance from the helicopter to the landing pad?

Use something like this

Tan 37 = opp/adj  =   1250/x    where x = horiz distance

.7535 = 1250/x      

x=1658.8 ft
