    Angles of Elevation and Depression

    Here's the question. A 50-meter vertical tower is braced with a cable secured at the top of the tower and tied 30 meters from the base. What angles does the cable form with the vertical tower?

    How would I go about solving this problem?

    Hi inneedofserioushelp2013,

    Nice user name.

    Did you draw a triangle?

    Did you label it?

    Use Inverse Tangent to find the angle the cable makes with the tower.
