Can someone please help me with this question?
A, B and C are three points which lie in a straight line on horizontal ground.
The angle of elevation of T from A is 21.5.
The angle of elevation of T from C is 13.3.
AC = 1200 m.
Calculate the height of the tower.
you could try breaking the base edge down into b and 1200-b
then you can get two equations with two unknowns (b and the height of the tower)
Break it down into B and 1200-b and use Tan with the respective angles to find the unknown.
