A forest ranger spots a fire from a 28-foot tower. The angle of depression from the tower to the fire is 11degrees . To the nearest foot, how far is the fire from the base of the tower? Show the steps you use to find the solution. I need someone to check my answer please. I did this and got about 5ft, tan(0) = x/28 tan(11) = x/28 28tan(11) =x 28tan(11) = 5ft.
