The Greek Theta symbol (θ) is used to represent the angle. Such as the tangent of Theta could be represented as tanθ, which is equal to y/x (opposite / adjacent). If the angle of measurement is 30 degrees to the top of a tree in question and we have a distance of 100 feet we can use basic algebra to conclude y = x (tanθ), or 100ft times 0.58 (look tangent of 30 degrees up on tangent chart), for an height of the tree of 58 feet.This is just a simple use for trigonometry, but trigonometry has many uses and is good to know in analyzing many situations.
