do you mean 9 degrees with the horizontal??
It shud b8 degrees
Think of the whole thing s a right angled triangle. The height is 7400ft. The angle with the horizontal is 9 degrees. which means tan(theta) = vertical height/horizontal distance Sp the horizontal distance = 7400/tan (9 degrees in radians) = 7400/0.15838 = 46723.07 ft
