**Reiny**, Monday, August 2, 2010 at 9:37amThe only hard part I see about this problem is the way the angle is stated.

you will have to change it to

(23 + 37/60)° and then take the tangent ratio.

(on my calculator I have a key labelled D°M'S

so I could take

tan

23

D°M'S

37

=

and I get the same result as above.

BTW, did you get a height of 142.1 m ?
