The surface of the ramp will be 7 feet long with a total rise of 2 feet. Find the angle of elevation of the ramp?
Your school is organizing a carnival. You are building a ramp for a game. The surface of the ramp will be 7 feet long with a total rise of 2 feet. Find the angle of elevation of the ramp.

It will form a right angle triangle and its angle of elevation is arcsin(2/7) = 16.6 degrees to the nearest tenth

arcsin(2/7) = about 16.6 degrees

sin(t) = 2/7
t = arcsin(2/7)
t = 16.601549599020233979536453745253...

so find Θ if sin Θ = 2 / 7...use the sin^-1 on your calculator
