    Hi Marie, use the reminder

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Use SOH CAH TOA to recall how the trig functions fit on a triangle

    SOH: Sin(Ф)= Opp / Hyp

    CAH: Cos(Ф)= Adj / Hyp

    TOA: Tan(Ф) = Opp / Adj

    Tan(x) = Opp / Adj

    Tan(x) =32 / 24

    X = arcTan(32/24)

    X = 53.13°
