2. Sample answer: An angle of elevation is called that because the angle formed by a horizontal line and a segment joining two endpoints rises above the horizontal line. 3. The angle of depression is / FPB and the angle of elevation is / TBP . 4. AC is 50 miles or 50(5280) 5 264,000 feet.

The angle of depression between the ship and the horizontal is 13.25°. Find the length along the ocean floor. The ocean floor and the horizontal level with the ship are parallel, creating congruent alternate interior angles / BAC and / ACD . tan13.25° ¬ 5 } D 40 C } DC tan13.25° ¬ 5 40 DC ¬ 5 } tan1 4 3 0 .25° } DC ¬ < 169.9 The diver must walk about 169.9 meters along
