Geometry question, please help?
A mouse is trying to get back to her hole in the wall. She is sitting on a kitchen counter that is 3.5 feet tall. If the horizontal distance from the counter to the wall is 10 feet, what is the angle of depression from the mouse to the hole? Round your answer to the nearest whole number.
The angle of depression is approximately __________°.

Angle of depression = x
Tan(x) = 3.5/10
Tan^-1 (3.5/10) = x
x ≈ 19 degrees
