The angle between the ramp and the horizontal is 45 degrees.
The angle between the ramp and the horizontal is 45 degrees. This means that we are dealing with a right triangle, with one leg of length L (the height of the ramp) and one leg of length R (the horizontal distance from the bottom of the ramp to point A).
The shortest distance between two points is a straight line, so we know that AC (the hypotenuse) must be equal to AB plus BC. In other words, AC = AB + BC = 2L + R.
Now, using trigonometry, we can find all three sides of this triangle. We know that AC is equal to 2L + R, so we can find R using this equation: R = 2L – AC = 2L – 2L + R = 0
