    if i have labeled the triangle correctly, you should see that tangent of angle 0 is 20/32 therefore \[O=tan^{-1}(\frac{20}{32})=32\]

    yes that is what i got. it is the angle whose tangent is 20/32 if i labeled correctly, so it is the inverse tangent of 20/32 which my calculator told me was 32 degrees.
