I found my answer by putting 150^2+400^2=d^2 so that I could put d into my equation that i showed earlier.I came out with a value for theta, and it was 12.4, and the question asked for the larger angle so i substracted it from 90 degrees to get 77.6

Many modern 3D video games must be designed such that objects move in ways as close as possible to reality. This is often called “game physics”, which is run by a physics engine coded into the game. In one event of a recent game, a player’s job is to shoot a cannon at...
I was able to figure out the larger angle, which is 77.6 degrees, I am instructed to find the smaller angle, and I'm not having any luck, usually it should just be 90-77.6 to get 12.4 but the answer is wrong.
I've had similar questions to ones like this, however, I'm having difficulty finding the value for theta, and am not sure on how it is to be calculated without the time given. We've had questions like this before but they supplied more information.
