Hi,
All variables given in blue are known values. I am trying to calculate the angle X in terms of the variables I know. How can I do this?
Hello, Corpsecreate!
All variables given in blue are known values.
I am trying to calculate the angle X in terms of the variables I know.
The sum of the (interior) angles of a triangle is always equal to 180^{o}.
Hence: .
Got it?
Angle is the entire interior angle, not just the angle up to the horizontal. will give , will give a number larger than .
The angle side makes with the horizontal is , I dont see how adding to this angle would give me angle ?

The angle referred to is the complement of the one you state, that is,The angle side makes with the horizontal is , I dont see how adding to this angle would give me angle ?

This will equal the angle below the horizontal at Add and you get
BTW., some labels on the diagram would have helped.
