**Reiny**, Monday, March 2, 2009 at 3:02pmstill trying to figure out how you can "stand" on a mountainside that makes an angle of 62º with the horizontal.

If so, then the persons legs would make an angle of 28º with the side of the mountain.

5 feet = 60 inches

so are you asking

is x < 27 , if x/60 = tan 28 ?

I get x = 31.9

so what do you think?
