An airplane rises vertically 1000 feet over a horizontal distance of 1 mile. What is the angle of elevation of the airplane's path? (hint: 1 mile = 5280 feet)

  • math - ,

    use a^2 + b^2 = c^2
    a=1000
    b=5280

    First of Jenn, he's asking for the ANGLE of a triangle, not the hypotenuse.

    And the method you want to use is Tan x = 1000/5280

    probably, if it doesnt work, than you're on your own
