Fred was measuring the height of a building. He stood standing at some distance from
the building and measured an angle of 38 degrees to the top of the building. He then
walked 100 feet further away from the building and measured an angle of 34 degrees to
the top.
How tall is the building?

I know I'm suppose to use tan

I got tan38=y/x from the first part of the information. I need help getting the second part
