18°

Step-by-step explanation:

A ski slope is 320 yards long with a vertical drop of 100 yards. Find the

angle of elevation of the ski run. Round to the nearest degree.

The formula for angle of elevation is given as:

sin θ =Opposite/ Hypotenuse

Opposite = Vertical drop = 100 yards

Hypotenuse = Ski slope = 320 yards.

Angle of elevation =

sin θ = 100/320

sin θ = 0.3125

θ = arc sin(0.3125)

= 18.209956864°

Approximately = 18°
