The Leaning Tower of Niles, in Illinois, is a replica of the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. It was completed in 1934. The Tower of Niles is 94 feet high and has a lean (the distance from the base of the tower to the point that is aligned vertically with the top of the tower) of 7.4 feet. What angle does the Tower of Niles make with the ground? How far would an ant have to walk to make it from the ground to the top of the tower?

    Use the pythagorus theorem, a more accurate diagram would be |dw:1440829077948:dw|

    For that you'll have to use a calculator or look at an inverse tangent table

    or you can leave your answer as \[\theta=\tan^{-1}(\frac{BC}{AB})\] if that works
