How to compute slope distance from horizontal distance & vertical angle

1. The formula is cos (angle) = HD/SD
2. Then, SD = HD/cos (angle)
3. SD = slope distance
4. HD = Horizontal distance
5. angle = slope angle
Please take note that vertical angle is 90 degree when it is horizontal, up is less than 90 degree.
