**Reiny**, Monday, October 15, 2012 at 11:13pmSo you want the angle at the top of the triangle where the pole touches the tree.

then the "opposite" is 3 and the adjacent is 8

looks like a tan relationship

tanØ = 3/8

Ø = 20.56°

**Steve**, Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at 10:07amLooks to me like a sin/cos relationship: the 8 is the hypotenuse

sinØ = 3/8

Ø = 22.02°
