Tina's Day Off It's a Tuesday morning and Tina has the day off from school. She has her whole day planned outside of her home and is about to get ready for the day.
Tina is ready to tackle the day, so she bursts through the door and yells goodbye to her mom and dad as she's leaving. The first thing on her agenda is to have lunch with her friend Josh in the city.
Tina finally reaches the city. Josh had told her that there is a sign that says "Downtown Pizza." When she finally sees the sign, she notices that the sign is 11 feet from the ground and she is 12 feet away from it. Using the knowledge that she knows, Tina finds the angle of elevation from her feet. tanx=11/12 x=tan^-1(11/12) x=38.7 degrees
