Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Actually, even better would be: \[ \tan(\theta) = \frac{50}{57} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then there is \[ \tan(\theta + 10.5^\circ) = \frac{50+x}{75} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay all together, without errors \[ \begin{array}{rcl} \tan(\theta) &=& \frac{50}{75} \\ \tan(\theta + 10.5^\circ) &=& \frac{50+x}{75} \end{array} \]
