Arithmetic question

Howard in Toronto
I'd like to build a porch bench. it's to have legs that angle outwards. But everywhere I've looked gives me the height. And I need the length of the legs.

Can someone show me the calculation for calculating the length of the legs to arrive at an 18" height on an 11-degree angle.

Seeing heavy-duty arithmetic is not my strong suit, if you were to show me template for the calculations, I'd sure appreciate your help for future self-induced brain problems.

Thanks.

Howard
