I'm not sure why but I can't seem to figure this problem out at all...

You have a slice of a banked circular track... Find the angle theta. See attachment,

My first guess was to use the pythagorean theorem + the fact that the two lengths are both equal to angle/360* 2 * pi * r where r is different for both lengths but is related by pythagorean theorem however that has been inconclusive

The ratio of the lengths has not been helpful either.
