A field in the shape of a right triangle is bordered on one side by a stream, on another side by a road, and on a third side by a fence.

What angle does this stream make with the road?

Let theta be the angle the stream makes with the road.

\(\cos \theta = \dfrac{20}{27}\\ \theta = \cos^{-1}\dfrac{20}{27}\approx 42^{\circ}\)

This stream makes a 42-degree-angle with the road.
