Two birds sit at the top of two different trees 57.4 feet away from one another. The distance between the second bird and a bird watcher on the ground is 49.6 feet.
What is the angle measure, or angle of depression, between the first bird and the bird watcher?
Two trees that are 49 point 6 feet tall with a bird on top of each. Distance between the birds is 57 point 4 feet. Angle of depression between birdwatcher and first bird is unknown.
