What angle do you think the angle is from my foot to the rim?
I’m not sure but we can use trigonometry to find out.
How would trigonometry help to find that?
You would have to imagine there’s a triangle here.
I know the rim is 10 feet from the ground, and I’m standing 6 feet from the hoop.
We know this is a right triangle, so now we have to find the angle.
We need to use SOHCAHTOA to find the missing angle.
We will use tangent and the formula is tan-1(10/6)
The angle we were trying to find is 59.0.
Now you know the angle your foot makes towards the rim.
