Math

My problem involves right-triangle trigonometry.

A man on a 135-ft vertical cliff looks down at an angle of 16 degrees and sees his friend. How far away is the man from his friend? How far is the friend from the base of the cliff?

Does the 16 degrees go to the left of the right angle or below it?
