If someone could tell me if this is correct, it would really help me out.

Problem: A statue 20 feet high stands on top of a base. From a point in front of the statue, the angle of elevation to the top of the statue is 48 degrees, and the angle of elevation to the bottom of the statue is 42 degrees. How tall is the base?

Solution: I am getting 85.7 feet, when rounding to the nearest tenth. Is this correct?
