Answer: Fred’s location after the dive is 56.1 degrees

Step-by-step explanation:

A right angle triangle is formed in this situation. The distance that Fred climbed to the top of the cliff 35 feet above sea level represents the opposite side. The distance from the top of the cliff to his current position represents the hypotenuse. To determine Fred’s location after the dive, we would apply the sine trigonometric ratio.

Sin# = opposite side/adjacent side

Sin# = 35/42 = 0.83

# = 56.1°
