Two ladders are the same distance from the base of a wall. The longer ladder is 15m long and makes an angle of 58 with the ground. if the shorter ladder is 12.6m long, what angle does it make with the ground?
d = 15*cos58 = 7.95 m. = Distance from
base of the wall.
Cos A = d/L = 7.95/12.6 = 0.63086
A = 50.9o
