Challenge! Ready? A tree that is 10 yards tall casts a shadow 14 yards long. Find the angle of elevation from the tip of the shadow to the top of the tree. Round to the nearest degree.

The shadow length would be the adjacent side and the tree would be the opposite side. tangent (angle) = opp/adj tangent (angle) = 10/14 tangent (angle) = 0.71429 Can you figure it out from here?

I already know the answer. It is 36 degrees
