This problem is tricky because I don't know the distance point A is from the base. Point B would be a distance of 600ft.+ the distance of point A, I think.

height=B*tan32

where A and B are the distances from the tower. B-A=600 or B=600+A

subtract equation 2 from 1

height-height=0=Atan61-(600+A)tan32

solve for A

then, solve for height.
