    It would have to be 48 degrees. It's the same angle as the rope and the tree.

    Wait, is the tree positioned at a 90 degree angle?

    That is strange. It looks like they are saying the tree is 48 degrees. That is crazy. They have to be talking about the angle between the rope and ground, right?

    I know but what is 48 degrees? Why are they pointing at the tree?

    Building and tree are parallel, so @zordoloom is correct. |dw:1354025384921:dw|
