The angle between the original line of sight (eye-level) and the new line
of sight is known as the angle of elevation because I have to lift up or elevate my eye in order to see the object. eye - level

The angle between the original line of sight (eye-level) and the new line
of sight is known as the angle of depression because I have to look down in order to see the object. eye - level

A Tree Casts A Shadow 87 Feet Long
A Tree Casts A Shadow 87 Feet Long. If the Angle Of Elevation From The Ground To The Top Of The Tree is 50°, Find The Height Of The Tree. (round to the nearest tenth) x 50o 87

S O H C A H T O A Step1: label the names of the sides.
x Opposite Step2: Choose the ratio that contains BOTH letters. Adjacent S O H C A H T O A Opposite tan (50) = Adjacent x tan (50) = 87 x = 103.7 ft
