Trig math help

On the launch pad at Kennedy's space center there is an escape basket that can hold 4 astronauts. The basket slides down a wire that is attached 198ft above the base of launch pad. The angle of elevation from where the basket would touch the ground to the base of the launch is 1° and the angle of elevation from that point to where the wire is attached is 10°. Solve the triangle.

I cannot picture the spatial relationship of the "base of the launch" to the "touch the ground" to where "the wire is attached."
