The height of the building represents

the vertical leg of a rt. triangle, and

the hor dist. from the bottom is the hor. leg of the rt. triangle. The line

of sight from the end of the 48m line

to the top of building is the hyp. The

angle of elevation is the acute angle

between the hyp. and the hor. leg.

TanB = Y/X = 195/48 = 4.06, B = 76.2

deg. = angle of elevation.
