Using the

slopeconcept, supposing the horizontal distance is of 1500 feet, theangle of depressionwill be of37º.## What is a slope?

The slope is given by the

vertical change divided by the horizontal change, and it's also thetangentof the angle of depression.In this problem, we suppose an

horizontaldistance of1500feet, with averticaldistance of2000feet, hence:The

angle of depressionwill be of37º.More can be learned about the
