From the top of a lighthouse 70 feet high, the angle of depression to a small boat is 44 degrees. How far from the foot of the lighthouse is the boat? Choose the equation that would be used to solve the problem. a) tan 46 = 70/x b) tan 46 = x/70 c) tan 44 = 70/x d) tan 44 = x/70 e) sin 44 = x/70

    Then angles should be changed which gives tan(44)= x/70

    c) tan 44 = 70/x
