A man standing on level ground is 1000 feet away from the base of a 350-foot-tall building.  Find, to the nearest degree, the measure of the angle of elevation to the top of the building from the point on the ground where the man is standing.

Just  use the tangent inverse

 

arctan ( 350  / 1000)  = the angle   ≈  19.2°  = 19°
