A)what is the straight-line distance to the airport?

B)What is the angle of elevation of the airplane, from the point of of view of the airport?

**Steve**, Friday, March 2, 2012 at 4:56pmThe plane is at a distance d where

d^2 = 75^2+35^2+6^2 = 6886

d = 83 km (82.99, but who's checking?)

the angle of elevation θ = arctan(6/83) = 4.169° = 4°10'8"

θ = arcsin(6/83) = 4.145°
