*In Exercises 21 to 30, use the drawings, where provided, to solve each problem, Angle measures should be found to the nearest degree; lengths should be found to the nearest tenth of a unit.*

The basket of a hot-air balloon is 300 ft high. The pilot of the balloon observes a stadium 2200 ft away. What is the measure of the angle of depression?

To determine

**To find:**

The measure of the angle of depression of a stadium from a hot-air balloon which is 2200 ft away from it and the balloon is 300 ft high.

Explanation

**Procedure used:**

In any right triangle ABC with

**Calculation:**

**Given:**

Height of the balloon

Distance of the balloon from the stadium

The angle of depression

Let us structure the given figure as follows as a right triangle.

In the above triangle we have

Since,

Thus,

Here, we have
