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

    The distance to the top of the tree is 35 tan 23, regardless of the leaning 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.
