This looks like it should just be putting the whole thing in the calculator and getting an answer. Could you explain what you did and the answer you got?

It's okay i found out how to do it.
(For anyone who cares):
Typing the whole thing in gave me 1.344359872(the wrong answer)
I had to first work out 4.3*tan39
Then work out 23.4-6.06
Then divide those 2 answers
And finally raise my answer to the power of 1/3
