# Sailboat

The 20 m long sailboat has an 8 m high mast in the middle of the deck. The top of the mast is fixed to the bow and stern with a steel cable. Determine how much cable is needed to secure the mast and what angle the cable will make with the ship's deck.

Correct result:

x =  25.6125 m
A =  38.6598 °
