  1. A tree is 175 feet tall.  If Jim is standing 81 feet from the tree, what is the angle of elevation from the ground where Jim is standing to the top of the tree?  Round to the nearest tenth.

We  can use  the  tangent  inverse  (arctan ) to find this  angle

 

arctan  ( 175  /81)   = angle of elevation   ≈  65.2°
