Q:
# As cars drive up a ramp at a multi-storey car park they go up 2 meters. the length of the ramp is 10 meters. find the angle between the ramp and the horizontal

Accepted Solution

A:

this is a right angle triangle problem

drawing a vertical line at from the point where the ramp touches the car park leaves a right angle triangle with the

opposite being 2m

hypothenus being 10m

adjacent unknown

we could use sine

SineO equal to opposite over hypothenus

SineO equal to 2/10

SineO equal to 0.2

O equal to Sine^1(0.2)

O equal to 11 .5

The angle between the ramp and the horizontal is 11.5 degrees
