    Trigonometry - modelling and problem solving

    Can you tell me if I have the correct answer for the following problem.

    Standing due south of a tower 50m high, the angle of elevation to the top is 26 degrees. What is the angle of elevation after walking a distance of 120m due east?

    I have an answer of 17.6 degrees
