is it a right angled triangle?

I apologize for the poor drawing. I know that I use tangent so it would be: tan(theta)=.5952 but I don't know how to get degrees after that.

Yes, it's a right triangle.

SOHCAHTOA you have an opposite side to that angle and an adjacent one. The ratio you need to use is `TOA` = \(\tan(\theta) = \dfrac{17.5}{29.4}\)

So naturally to find the missing angle we take the arctan function. \[\theta = \tan^{-1}\left(\frac{17.5}{29.4}\right)\]

\[\tan \theta=\frac{ 17.5 }{ 29.4 },\theta=\tan^{-1} \frac{ 17.5 }{ 29.4 }=30.76~ degree\]
