Yes like that but no negative and switch the numbers

Remember SOH-CAH-TOA.

Since you have O (opposite) and A (adjacent), what trig ratio should you choose?

Tan

$\tan ^{-1}(x)=\frac{ opposite }{ adjacent }\rightarrow \tan^-1(x)=\frac{ 15 }{ 8 }$

Enter this on your calculator, then that's it.

So 82.875 .
