An airplane is climbing 250 feet for every 1,000 feet it travels. Estimate the airplane’s climb angle while this is happening

This question is a bit unclear....

  I will assume the travel distance is the hypotenuse of a right triangle

  the opposite leg of the angle of climb is 250

sin(angle) = 250/1000

arcsin (250/1000) = angle = 14.48 degrees

 

 

(if the 1000 is the ground distance travel   then    tan (angle ) = 250/1000    angle = 14.04 degrees)
