**drwls**, Sunday, September 12, 2010 at 7:12amLet the height of the mountain (in feet) be H.

Let the initial horizontal distance from the mountain peak be X.

H/X = tan 23.7 = 0.43897

H/(X-5280) = tan 30.633 =0.59218

Solve the two equations in two unknowns (X and H)

H - 0.43897X = 0

H - 0.59218X = -3126.7
