I have no idea what angle it's talking about and also what angle im supposed to get in this problem. It seems to me like the problem is written wrong. Could anyone please let me know if it is wrong or right. If it's a valid problem could you also post a simple MSPaint drawing of how this should be drawn with the 30degree angle along with the angle im supposed to find :) thanks!!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

One of the contests at the school carnival is to throw a spear at an underwater target lying flat on the bottom of a pool. The water is 1.20m deep. You're standing on a small stool that places your eyes 3.10m above the bottom of the pool. As you look at the target, your gaze is 30degrees below horizontal. At what angle below horizontal should you throw the spear in order to hit the target?
