Because of prevailing winds, a tree grew so that it was leaning 4 degrees from the vertical. At a point, 35 meters from the tree, the angle of elevation to the top of the tree is 23 degrees. Find the height h of the tree

It they want the LENGTH of the tree, then the 4 degree tilt can ba accounted for by dividing the height by cos 4 = 0.99756 That is only 0.25% more than the height.
