Answer:Yes the ramp can be safely used

Explanation:Here, we have

Length of longest ramp = 5 ft

Height of wall = 2 ft

Therefore, the sine of the angle adjacent to the ramp which is equal to the angle of elevation is given by;

Where:

The opposite side to angle = 2 ft wall and

Hypotenuse side = Ramp = 5 ft

Therefore,

and θ = sin⁻¹0.4 = 23.55 °

The ramp can be safely used as the angle it is adjacent to is less than the specified 30°.
