Danny has a 15-foot board that he wants to use as a motorcycle ramp.If he wants the end of the ramp to be 4 ft off the ground,what angle will be formed between the board and the ground?

If you draw the diagram, you will see that 15 is the hypotenuse of the triangle and 4 is the side opposite your angle.

Sin x = 4/15
