#### Answer

$37^{\circ}$

#### Work Step by Step

The trigonometric ratios are as follows: $\cos \theta =\dfrac{adjacent}{hypotenuse}$ We need to use a scientific calculator and press the inverse cosine function $\cos^{-1}$ Suppose $\cos \theta =\dfrac{60}{75}$ This gives: $\theta \approx 37^{\circ}$
