The ladder forms the hypotenuse (r) and the wall forms the vertical (y) of a right triangle. sin theta = y / r the angle at the bottom is (90 - 32) = 58

sin 58 = 20 / r

r = 20 / sin 58 = 23.583568067241928552025478405751 feet

How long must a ladder be to reach the top of a 20' wall if the ladder and the wall form a 32 degree angle (at the angle)?

Then an angle of 58 degrees will be at the bottom of the ladder. Use trigonometry and the sine ratio: sin = opp/hyp and hyp = opp/sin hyp = 20/sin(58) = 23.58356807 length of ladder = 24 feet to the nearest foot
