The slope measurement between two points is 25.333 m and the slope angle is 1°50. Compute the horizontal distance.

A distance of 177.50 ft was measured along a 3% slope. Compute the horizontal

distance.

The slope distance between two points is 29.705 m and the difference in elevation between the points is 3.658 m. Compute the horizontal distance.
