**Henry**, Tuesday, November 23, 2010 at 7:44pmTwo rt triangles are formed. The common ver. side represents the ht. of

the mountain. The 3.5 deg angle of elevation lies bet. the hyp and hor side of the larger triangle. The 9 deg

angle is located bet. the hyp and hor side of the smaller triangle.

tan3.5 = h / (x + 13),

h = (x + 13)tan3.5,

h = (x + 13)0.0612,

Eq1: h = 0.0612x + 0.7951,

tan9 = h/x,

Cross multiply:

h = xtan9,

Eq2: h = 0.1584x.

Substitute 0.1584x for h in Eq1:

0.1584x = 0.0612x + 0.7951,

0.1584x - 0.0612x = 0.7951,

0.0962x = 0.7951,

x = 0.7951 / 0.0962 = 8.27.

h = 0.1584 * 8.27 = 1.31 mi = ht of mt.
