Yes, it’s trigonometry. What you need to know is the width of the table and the height. If, for instance, the width of the table is 16” and the height is 24”, then the legs would be at an angle whose tangent is 24/16, or roughly 56º.

If your numbers refer to the width and height of the table, then the inverse tangent of 16.5/37 is about 24º.

Of course, the legs aren’t likely to go to the very edge of the table, so you need to account for that.
