I did tan = 10540/250
but I don't know if that is correct.

Code:
      * - - - - - - - - - - -
|   *   α
|       *
250 |           *
|               *
|                   *
|                    θ  *
*---------------------------*
: - - - - 10,560  - - - - - :

The angle of depression is $\alpha$ . . . which equals angle $\theta.$

And: . $\tan\theta \:=\:\frac{250}{10.560}$

Got it?

3. I get 1.356 degrees
