Jack and Jill are standing on a large hill, as shown above. Jill, being a mischievous girl, throws a stone at Jack to break his crown. At what angle, \(\theta\), with the inclined plane (in degrees) must Jill aim the stone so that it lands closest to Jack?

**Details and Assumptions**

- The hill is sufficiently large, so the stone does not reach Jack for any value of \(\theta\).
- Ignore air resistance.
