To determine the angle of elevation of a star in the sky, you align the star and the top of the backboard of a basketball hoop that is $$5$$ feet higher than your eyes in your line of vision (see figure). Your horizontal distance from the backboard is $$12$$ feet. What is the angle of elevation of the star?
$$\text { About } 22.6 ^ { \circ }$$
