To paint a house, Travis leans a ladder against the wall.  If the ladder is 16 feet long and it makes contact with the house 14 feet above the ground, what angle does the ladder make with the ground?

The angle would be 101 degrees.

 

Sin θ = 14/16

 

θ = sin^-1 (14/16)

 

θ = 101 degrees

 

:D
