- Of course Patto! lets first find angle y, the angle on the edge of the overhang closest to the door! Let's use the inverse cosine!cos-1 x = 14/20x= 45.57°
- Hi! I am Patto the Gato and got stuck up here! Can you help me get down?

- Next Patto, we need to find the height you have to jump at. Let's use tangent to do this!sin 45.57= opp/2014.28=opp

- NO PATTO ! YOU FORGOT YOUR FOOD!
- I can make that! Here I go!

- That's alright! We will just get a latter to put against the building so you can get back up. No big deal! Let's find the angle the ladder will be on the ground.

- lets use the inverse of sin to find what angle we should put the ladder at. sin^-1x=14/20x=44.43°Now go get your food!
