Homework Help: Math

Posted by Ms. Suzie on Monday, March 2, 2009 at 12:52pm.

Another question is a guy wire stretches from the top of an antenna tower to a point on level ground 18 feet from the base of the tower. The angle between the wire and the ground is 63 degrees. How high is the tower?

So I said the tower was 3503 fet high because i did tan63 * 18; I feel this answer is wrong..if it is can you please give me the right answer and explain why my method was wrong?
